Greetings from the CC, well hmm this is an odd but interesting photo. I do like it, it makes me laugh a little, so it at least provokes some feeling, not often done in most shots. I think from a technical point of view if you had moved your subject to the left 1/3 of the photo It would of really helped, would of also created an interesting dynamic btween the guy and the ele. I am not sure what angle you have taken this at, probably standing up, but had you perhaps squatted down it may have made him seem even grander. Not a huge range of tones in the black and white rendering but I think would of been good if the white portions were not quite as bright, especially his chest area, maybe could dodge it a bit?

I like the shot, sorry you did not do better, keep up the efforts!

Ok this has to take some time to setup. A 10 for your efforts ;) Good luck!

This made me chuckle. Maybe a tighter crop to the bottom of the pedestal and an ironing of the toga front.

Self-portrait? Always fun. Hope that paint came off easy.

Dude -- way to put in the effort! It's tough to get enough background exposure when your subject is such a bright white, but this shot still came out really well.
