I know you can't do anything about it, but the bar covering part of the statues head gets in the way. Still, wonderful colors! 8.

Striking image. Draws and keeps my attention. I like the cool blue/purple choice in coloring. Silhouettes tend to add interest in most photo situations. I'm not sure if I like the trees framing the statue(?). It all works together, but I'm wondering if it might be better with a more open feel with no trees. Great lines, great photo. 8

I like the monotone choice for your shot. Would be curious to see an outtake without the plants but i still like your choice. I like the shadowy feel of it too.

Pretty neat, though not exactly subtle lighting. You've over-done the sharpening considerably, in my book - all those jagged lines - though I can appreciate what drove you to it. Not bad stuff though.

Wonderful color. Perhaps a bit overshaprened as the subject and leaves look a little jagged. Would prefer to have a clearer view of the head (it sort of blends in with the dark area at the top), even if it meant losing some of the legs... Overall, wonderful image, just a few nitpicks is all. Good luck!
