Hello Ulrich. You have chosen a very interesting perspective, which underlines the the ancient politician's expression, like a symbol of his power, looking up to him from a common people's point of view. Very well done. The framing symmetrical architecture and the frontal perspective make a great composition for the statue. I also like the shadow of his arm on the wall behind him, which even underlines his powerful appearance. Your photo is technically on a very high level in my opinion - colours are saturated, but still natural .. sharpness, lighting and contrast are very good too. I would have preferred to see more of the lower part of the statue though, because it appears a bit "cut off" in your photo. Anyways, a very expressive photo, Ulrich, thanks for sharing. Best regards, Roland.
