Very nicely captured, but where's the frame?

A very impressive piece of stone work beautifully crafted, and captured superbly in order toe enhance it exquisite detail.

Lovely detail, Jasmine, but not much room around the statue. Not a problem but it does look slightly unbalanced with so much room above the statue (maybe a squarer crop?).

Another beautifully sculpted old work of art, Jasmine, full of action and impact. As I was scrolling down, I have to admit to feeling the top was unnecessary, like Dave. I like the bit of carving top left, and would probably take it down to the right-hand tip of that.

OK,.. Thank you Dave, thank you Pamela. I take your advices.. it could be corpped a bit on the top...
I thought about the top when I cropped it, but I thought that the whole figure , his sword and the top lines all draw toward top left, the invisible lines merge somewhere out side the image, but as you both said, it could be corpped at the top line of the window...thank you again.
Thank you Lynne. I put this one on trekearth as well today, I was afraid that it would be taken off if I put border on....but I have saved your email, and I'll try it again some other time, actually I was trying to do a flower with your border this afternoon, but it seemed that the photo wasn't good enough.. , I passed by some flowers along the public footpath, I snapped a few, through the fence, I don't do plant much, a bit lost really.. you'll see your beautiful border againGrin
Thank you all for your kind comments.

I like the scale of this image and feel that the architectural skyline adds to drama.

I would like to see an image of this statue with the window behind being used to frame the statue, but that is a completely different image all together.

This is a really good capture with a feeling of light and warmth within it. Well done SmileSmile
