A well adorned statue John, good point of view.
John Prior: Thanks Les.
Hi John... It's especially fine with the grey clouds & the punch of flower colour.
John Prior: Thanks Jacquelyn, that appealed to me also.
great processing on the colors
John Prior: Thanks a lot Chantal.

I like the low vantage point for this. The details in the statue are quite impressive. The way the coat hangs just right with the folds where they should be. Amazing.
John Prior: Thank you Sherri, travelling light I took my old point and shoot with me, I was pleased with the results.
Excellent sculpture isn't it.
John Prior: It is great, and the garland of flowers seemed a nice way of expressing the Summer Exhibition. Thanks Brian.

Great composition and neat processing, John.
John Prior: Thank you Arash smile
The processing is great - I like the sky and flowers against him - somehow look like reality and fantasy are competing (of course I'm having bouts of vertigo right now so I could be interpreting photos strangely!)
John Prior: Thank you T. Yes indeed, I thought the garland was a nice way of expressing the Summer Exhibition and I was lucky with the cloud cover, although a hint of blue can be seen above the balustrade, this also felt typical of the summers we've had in recent years.
nice angle, i like the moody clouds in the background. nice effect of the colours of the flower in an otherwise unsaturated image
John Prior: Thanks again Ayush, I was pleased with this one.
