Hmmm, I find the post a little feminine! But you took a fine shot!

Hi JM,
Thanks for the visit of my pose of langsat fruits.Uttaradit province in Thailand is known as largest producer of langsat fruits.The langsat festival is celebrated once a year in Uttaradit and is the biggest celebration.

A perfect shadow and I agree with Virginia, great pose too!

JM said...

Yes, the pose may look feminine (lol), but you have to remember that was the 18th century. Men had as much make-up as women did, used to have laces, cetins, brocades and velvets all over their bodies, high heels shoes and wigs too, so... :-)

Indeed ... . the pose is pure 18th century Dandy!
Love the double take of the shadow:
well done, as always ... JJJjj

The clarity of the shadow is wonderful. I like the moss(?) that is growing on one shoulder. Interestingly enough, it is the shoulder closest to the sun. I have bought a very small pottery shape of a woman that I want to scuff up a bit. I believe there is a garden chemical that will do that. Any idea what it might be called?

What a wonderful photograph, JM! A perfect composition only a pair of trained photographer's eyes could "see".

Wow! Perfect statue. Perfect shadow.

I love this one. He looks better sans lace, velvet and brocade (not to mention make-up).

I must say I know a few men who might like wigs to make a comeback, though.

Would have swore the statue was a female one if we had only seen the shadow!!
Nice statue.

Like the shadow shot!

I wonder what he's holding. We got lots of apples this fall but I'm not sure statues appreciate those.

Shadows are wonderful. Really adds to your photo.

"Oeiras Palace" made me curious and I went back to some of your previous posts. Something I obviously missed during my (too) short visits to Portugal! Maybe one day!

Jessica said...

Love the light and shadow. I had an interesting depth of field as well.

This photo is really eye catching!
Both the color and the statue are great, but the... cubistic shadow is fantastic!
