The close-up of this statue does not really convey a strong feeling of silence to me. Nicely photographed though with good dof, tectures and tones. 5

I originally marked this as a 4, because when I first saw it, I couldn't process it--I couldn't figure out what it was, and it didn't hold my interest enough to keep looking at it. Now that I've gone back and studied it more--I get it. I moved it to a 5, but even though I like the idea, I would have liked it better if the front part of the image was more in focus, and if the background was darker (without the light spots) to set the image off more. It's hard when they take dodge and burn away from us, isn't it!
