I love the gold hues of the setting sun and how it illuminates this wire frame statue of a person playing an instrument! The music of a sunset serenade fills the air. I do have two suggestions on how you can make this composition even stronger. Get lower to the ground and shot at a lower angle looking up at the wire statue if you can. What that would do is make more of the statue appear more prominent in the sky portion of the frame and push the land, buildings and the ocean lower to the ground (at the feet of this statue). The other benefit from getting that low angle is that now you would have the sun level with the head of the statue. Which is in a perfect position to move the angle such that you could you can place the setting sun within the head of the statue.


Thank you Novack for analysing the POV. Greatly appreciate your suggestion.

cheers

Thanks Juliet for your comments & pointers. Good suggestion on removing the cable cars. I never thought of that. Appreciate very much.
