I took this today at the Rodin Museum. I think that of all the conflicts, most people would immediately think of physical conflict, but I think that conflict of the mind causes the greatest distress in most.

Taken at 7 PM so that I can get a very nice natural purple glow in the background. Also, the bare branches behind the statue helps with the distressing mood of the mind I think.

I adjusted the exposure, white balance, saturation, levels and also sharpened a bit. That's it.

INteresting colors and composition. I like the lighting on the branch. I don't think a statue can have emotions or conflict. 5

Nice shot - the tree branches sort of remind me of lightning shooting across the sky

If your going steal a concept to make an image make it interesting you didn't even fix the coloring in photoshop or white balance in your camera. The contrast is off as well and you might have thought of using a real person or people as your form of model too.
