Simple Statue

Not sure if in correct forum.
Took a few pictures of this statue, situated in the front grounds of Manila Hospital, at various angles.
Did colourise it red and place it into a galaxy far far away, but I wanted to print it B&W on A3 canvas.
Overcast day, so sky was very bland.
All I did was increase the whites and blacks slightly.
My purpose with this image is to get away from going overboard and keep it simple and let the statue tell it's own story.
Have fun;

Nice shot, interesting angle, and you kept all your sky detail in spite of the bland sky, which means you could dramatize it even more if you decided to. The composition works nicely with the outstretched arms forming leading lines to draw us back in. Well done.

I like very much your chosen point of view, gazing up into the sky with him.

Miniev;
"you could dramatize it even more if you decided to."
Here is a play on the same statue at a different angle, but no, I wanted my print simple.
I could have taken the gray out of the sky, but decided to leave that texture in for the canvas print.
Have fun;

Ed, I prefer the b&w and am a sucker for those very deep blacks. Great range of tones in a very stark image. Well done. Matt

Thx Matt, Steve;
This was taken the day before I went on a medical mission. Got to the hospital about 4.00pm and departure was 3.00am next morning.
Next mission is in March. Tickets booked..hehe...
