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 ( )
