good detail.

Composition: Nice position. Seems very slightly off-centre though.
Technical: Good choice of b&w. Looks very slightly oversharpened?
Meets challenge: Yes
Overall impression: I guess this was difficult to take. Good, but getting it dead straight would help.

Yes, I've looked out of his nostrils too...

Did you know that the decisive battle accredited to him, actually took place two hours north of here?

Nice picture, picks out the details nicely. The grey scaling looks great.

My neighbor was a WWII veteran with lung damage from the war. He was a really neat old guy, awesome father and grandfather. He was confined to his house for 40 years due to his medical condition and treatments. Over the years, he collected tens of thousands of books, and his favorite was called Herman the German. He loaned it to me, but he died before I had a chance to read it. I still have it, and it was kind of out of sight, out of mind. Your photo has inspired me to dig up that book and read it. I owe it to a great man who has left this place behind, for a better one.
As for your photo, this is a great detail. Your lighting is perfect to give you lots of contrast and graytones. DPF is also ver good, everything being sharp and detailed. Nice shot, and do you know if this statue has anything to do with the book I am referring to? (supposed to be about a spy during the war).
