Very dramatic!!! :))
A superb silhouette full of energy and dynamism. Excellent .V
Very nicely done, Sofia!
Both the dynamic energy of the sculpture, and its heroic symbolism are echoed by the explosion of light from a setting sun. By abstracting the image in back light, it becomes a universal symbol as well. The off center placement of the statue gives the energy of its thrusting hand space to unfold. Your picture is a good example of composition based on the actions within the image. For example, if your statue had expressed movement to both sides, instead of one side as here, a centered placement might have worked for you (such as I used in my similar image of the Irish politician big Jim Larkin in Dublin (
