Took this one recently and would like a critique please. please ignore the bottom corners :headslap:, on the iPad right now so can't fix it until later.

very strong image - love the lines and overall geometry as well as the person looking at the statue. Well done.
Just as an FYI, even though it's a teeny detail, my eye went straight for those edges (as a distraction to be eliminated) before reading your post that it was unintentional.

I think I'd have to get picky to find much to critique in this. Maybe a bit more space at the bottom before the wall starts. The bright wall near the statue could be a bit too bright perhaps.
Love the composition and leading lines. Looks almost like a selective colouring black and white, but I think it's actually full colour right?

Yes, it is full colour, well spotted :) - this one was from a strange area of concrete pillars and concrete ramps outside the Opera House in Guangzhou.

Thanks for the comments! I guess I was wondering about the unconventional positions of the man and the statue. This is the full frame, and I only took one shot, so I can't give them any more breathing space. I think (hope) it still works but was wondering if anyone else agreed ;) I'm pleased at least two other people like it! :D :D :D

Make that 3 other people :),

This is very striking with it's hard architectural leading lines and soft lighting. Well spotted.
