What a fine image this is, JM. Very nicely composed.

Karl said...

Great composition and good angle, JM, It seems as if he says something or explains something to someone.

Nice shot.

I'm with everyone else - great angle and composition. In addition, the colors are amazing - wouldn't have had the same impact at another time of day. Love that indigo sky!

What does Chiado mean? If I try to interpret this with French, it doesn't sound very good!
He looks great against that blue sky. Nice shot!

Oh la la JM what an impressive image. Wonderful perspective, the blue sky is very much like the sky in Perth at the moment.

Gostei da iluminação e do ângulo da foto.

As tuas fotos neste blog são um tributo a Portugal. Penso que todo artista deve considerar antes de outra cultura, a sua própria. Parabéns!

This is simply stunning. Not sure what you did other than lots of saturation, but it sure works! Wow! That sky is perfection! And the poet looks like he's giving a dramatic reading!

A fantastic shot...

Kay said...

I can't add much to what's already been said, except, perhaps, "Me, too!" The lighting is just wonderful and the angle brings the statue to life. Wonderfully done!

Jack said...

Wonderful angle, perspective and lighting. One to blow up and put on the wall.

Randy said...

I agree with Jack. This photo is perfect.
