i could see the attraction of the subject, the difficulty here is isolating the subject from its surroundings to make it stand out and impose itself as a principle feature.

maybe a different viewpoint or a ground level view may have pushed it against the sky or other but here im losing the contours against other garden features and people. maybe a really wide aperature and a shallow depth of field may have pushed the background into blur.

so although i see what you were attempting, and boldly bringing the sculpture into the foreground im sorry to say i dont think it works totally as a composition.

the exposure and relative sharpness and colour are all fine.

best regards

A good try, and difficult to see how to improve. Could you get a very low viewpoint to make the main image stand out from the background. That is the problem here - you need very limited depth, or a lower viewpoint.
