I really like the lighting used here. It helps show dimension which is sometimes hard to see in black and white images.

I don't find the image all that interesting because it is just a single statue. I think it could have been better had you positioned the statue a little differently. I don't like that you can't see either of the two faces.

The focus seems a little soft but I don't mind that with this type of image. However, I do think you should have dropped your ISO setting down to 100 for even better quality. There is no reason to worry about a faster shutter speed when working with objects that aren't moving. Your file size could've been a little bigger as well.

Good ligthing and composition

It may be a 'literal representation of an existing art', but how is that Does Not Meet Challenge? This cleary meets the challenge as it depicts LOVE.

The literal representation of an existing art rule was abandoned in the latest rule set, so it's not even grounds for DQ.

IT is hard to make pictures of statues that stay interesting then the statue is such a static object. I think you have picked a very interesting subject but I would have liked to have maybe seen the part of the statue where they are actually kissing. The back of the woman is also a bit blown.

Except for the blown-out highlight on the female's back, the lighting is good.

Boo! Using someone else's artwork as the only aspect of the photo. Good lighting on the subject though.

I like the way the lighting hits the background here to bring out the statue, and is also softly hitting the front, but seems a bit harsh on the right side.
