[Theme] Masters of Light: Statues
« on: February 24, 2016, 01:30:12 »
Statues are seen and photographed by many and it can be rather challenging to make an image which stands out from the crowd.

Playing with available and / or added light is one of the tools to do so and this themed topic is just about that.

So, please show us how you used light to make an ordinary statue look a little more interesting.

Here's a few of mine, hope you like them.

The role of light is to reveal the three-dimensional in the flat image.

Fons, I think the idea was to celebrate the family and family life! The statue was unveiled by Queen Elizabeth on a visit to Uxbridge!

Interesting topic.

 Jann, your "man without arms looking through the window" and "silver scars" are something else... One I can relate to, making me "feel" for him. Intense. The other, spectacular. Great impact adds to the the statue giving it extra power and accentuating your vision of it. Thanks for sharing!
