It's not personification if the stone was carved to look like a person.

ahh! this statue looks evil! i love how the fingers are chopped off. it gives it more of an attitude. but great job! and nice pic.

Statues and figurines did not meet the challenge in my opinion.

Sorry, I see this sculpture as being a personification by the sculptor, not the photographer. Nice symbolism in the missing fingertips, though!

Not personification, interesting picture of a statue, would have worked for pride.

Interesting picture. the sky is pretty blown though.

Good perspective of this statue, but IMO it does not meet the challenge "Take a photo of something non-human-looking but yet still shows human characteristics or evokes a human feeling." This is definitely human looking.

It's a statue with human attributes...? Sorry, I was marking some images with a basic comment in case I didn't get back to them.

This image to me looks like a documentary type photo you might see in a college textbook on art. Technically it's ok. The overcast sky is a bit dull/uninteresting - can't always have blue skies. ;^) As for how this meets the challenge I still don't see it as I thought the subject was to be of a non-human looking inanimate object. This statue is very much human looking.

Gray - very English.

For me, statues are imitation rather than personification. Interesting composition and POV.

Nice shot, nice colors.

doesn't comply with contest rules "...non-human-looking but yet still shows human characteristics..."

10/12/2005 11:17:15 AM

10/12/2005 10:33:46 AM
Does not meet the challenge, rules state: "Take a photo of something non-human-looking"
