Today I was so heavy in heart .. like a massive weight. A break in the joy and thanksgiving I have at this time of year .. to pray for my friends that have lost a child. I lost my dad a couple months back .. but I would imagine nothing compares to the loss of a child :(, and especially near Christmas. But as I prayed, I was looking to put a pic on facebook to go with a prayer. A prayer that sat heavy with no words .. only knowing that God would do what I couldn't put words for .. and comfort a heart in a way I could only dream of. So I sat in front of Google "Image" , as I often do .. looking for a pic that would capture attention to go with teh prayer. And usually I can spent a great deal of time typing in word after word that might spark what I am feeling, and am image to relate it. NOT TODAY. I prayed and put in angel of hope .. cause I wanted the spirit of hope to be imparted to my friends that I love so dearly .. and this photo jumped out! IT'S WONDERFUL. I know nothing of this site, I cant even find the photographers name? yup, I'm an idiot :/ .. but I wanted to say that I thought it's very nice, adn that I'm sitting here weeping becasue it came IMMEDIATELY .. which is impossible with how large the internet is!!!!!!! God touched my heart today, while lifting up others .. and thru your picture it was made manifest to my heart. Merry Christmas to you and yours. Wish I could see this momument in person

Very nice perspective for this shot. Light is only slighly too harsh for me, but marvelous shot. 9

I love this shot. This is truly an artistic interpretation of the artist's original work. The color and detail are perfect. I'm a big fan of natural colors. The angle of this shot makes it a winner. 10

good shot, good use of depth of field. My personal taste would be slightly darker, but thats more a preference than criticism.

I like the perspective. The shallow DOF blurs out the background very effectively, a good submission.

Nice perspective. Much more effective than if you'd gotten the whole statue.

I like the angle of this shot, the details, and the lighting. Nicely done. Good luck.

excellent choice of perspective for this photograph. The lighting creates nice shadows and contrast...

Good detail, DOF, and lighting.

Very dramatic selection of the statue. Nice colors and composition.

Very nice job with the exposure! I like the angle. If at all possible, it might be worth trying to hold a solid background behind her. Good work with the dof, but it blends so well with the sculpture still. 7

Could use a tasteful boader, simply becasue the composition is so tight.
