Nice lighting/exposure. I think the subject is a bit too centered, but even so I really like this image - best authority I've seen so far. I'm very curious to know who the statue is of and where it is?

Nice capture with the caption. This fits the topic. You've got my vote!

could be a grat photo but maybe try to crop a little to decenter composition...

a little too dark I think but good shot

That is very cute and funny, the soldier really fits in!
Like it but not quite so I give you a 9.

Wow, you took this picture at the exact right time of day, the lighting is perfect. The perspective gives an imposing feel to the statue. I don't really know how I feel about pictures of sculptures - this image is, after all, basically a representation of someone else's art. But overall, I think the great lighting and perspective take it far enough away from a "literal representation" to deserve a high score. 8.

I really like this picture, you seemed to get the perfect angle to demonstrate its authority.

beautiful shot. love the lighting and colors, especially love the dof. this guy is a good symbol of authority. great perspective, tool. good luck!

Great angle and colors. Very good shot for this challenge. 9.

The lines of the colums behind the statue make him seem even bigger and more authoritative. Also, the blue hue on the pic gives it an ominous feeling which adds to the authoritativness. Good capture!

nice image

well lit and good clean focus
11/24/2004 01:21:49 PM
Nice idea. Why not simply use a symbol of authority instead of an example. I like that. The duotone works well with the statue, it emphasizes the texture and the shadows.

Nice tonal range, good focus, interesting subject. i like it. I am curious, though, where this is.

Very nice job. nice angle. gives a feeling of being very small.
