I'm not even a religious person, but the archangel Gabriel (who is sometimes associated with a horn), is the representation of the strength of God, and the patron saint of telecommunications. I did reach a bit, I know.

A good picture, but I don't get the connection. Is she announcing the good news and people gather strength from that... or what?

I like the lighting. The grey clouds behind, yet there still seems to be some sun coming from the front. Kind of angelic.

Is this Copenhagen? Are those the ones supposed to make the horn blow ONLY when a virgin cross the place? I was there and the horn NEVER sounded... good shoot anyway.

beautiful shot. The dark sky compliments the tone of the statue. well-composed the. A little bit more exposure on the statue might make it more stand-out. well-done image. 7
