  #252 A Different Perspective
Entry 3 of 19
   
 
Joan of Arc in Orlčans       ©2021 aoc46
Panasonic DMC-LX100       3rd place, 122 points
1/639s, f5.6, ISO 200, ?, Aperture Priority, Spot, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Typical RAW development adjustments, cropping and resizing, plus some retouching to remove graffiti.       Extra Info: Orlčans, France, is closely associated with Joan of Arc and her exploits in the Hundred Years' War. This statue of her in a main square is seen through one of the large sculptural "O"s that are part of the city's modern graphic identity.

    Great framing placing the statue in the O showing it's context within the city.

    Very nice finding and idea. Really a different perspective!

    Thx for the comments. The problem with removing the light standard is that its base and reflection in the lower left would have to go, too - not so easy.
fc - Good point about the pots; I should darken them some.

    Interesting shot and a very good interpretation of the challenge.

    This is beautiful. The reflections off the surface of the square really add to the shot. I think I would prefer it without the light standard, but with or without it it's an excellent shot.

    Nice choice of angle, good contrasts of colour and brightness

    I particularly like the inclusion of the light trident at the top left, it helps lead the eye beautifully. The dark foreground also works well to help you look further into the shot.

    Perfect choice for the theme. The street lights are a slight distraction and, from a purely artistic point of view, I would clone them out, although that does corrupt the true authenticity of the shot. Either way a very attractive shot.

    This is a great find. I keep wondering how it would look if it was a tighter crop to get rid of most of the surrounding?

    stunning use of concrete the pots bottom left are colour distracting but in my faves
