The light on the sculpture is wonderful - I think this would look good as a landscape - I think it might be worth loosing almost all of the sky, which then positions the wheelchair and the tall building well in the resulting image, and there would be a greater focus on the glorious golden light SmileSmile

Stunning, the man in the wheelchair adds to the emotion and quite overwhelming feeling of hope...

I recognise the scene from earlier uploads, this is the best by far. It's a strong composition, it tells a human story, it creates a link between the wheelchair-bound man and the distant horizon.
Two things I would change here - rotate the image a degree or two anti-clockwise, the sea horizon is tilting a bit; and crop to square. That would give a more contained feel for the link that I've mentioned above. This is about the man and the sculpture in the distance, the amount of sky dilutes that relationship to my eye.

Mod uploaded. I've skewed the top right corner up a bit to level the sea, and cropped to square - a few pixels off the bottom to bring the diagonal straight into the bottom left corner, the rest off the top.

Version 2 works well with this image, yes there are some blown highlights which you may look at avoiding in the future.

Interesting comments made above. I find I'm drawn more to Ivor's (Capto) mod, it looks better balanced and despite the greater amount of sky the wheelchair has greater significance in the lower part of the frame.

Well I have done some scrolling ..................reading the comments, looking at the mods, reading the comments......................
My verdict for what its worth... V1 is my fave, I like the light as it is, it gives the impression of something spectacular to be seen to the right that we can't see, I like the heavy dramatic sky above too.
Tremendous captureGrin

Incredibly difficult exposure with the sun hitting the metal straight on like that - it really gives a feel for the brightness of the setting sun. Well seen, and I think the square crop strengthens the image.

I like both of these - an excellent capture. I think the v2 crop is a very stronger image but not so peaceful, A
Great lighting puts a whole new name on the word golden hour, I like them both good work on a excellent idea.

This is just amazing! It makes me thing the guy was there contemplating about life as he was being inspired by some divine light coming from above!
