    Went down to the library yesterday afternoon after visiting my nephew and took a couple of shots of the new memorial to Colonel Matthias. Details/history on my blog.

    Looking at these again, I think the thing that made me prefer the 3rd one over the first two, is the fact that that one doesn't get distracted by anything else as the top of the tree distracts the statue on the first two...

    Its a clear shot of the subject (statue) and the background where on the first two there's another layer - the tree that sits between the subject and the background...

    does that make any sense at all??? :D

    Yep, it does. Because of the overcast sky and the building being where it is and being relatively light colored, I made the conscious decision to put the shrub behind many of the shots to define the sculpture a bit. I do that a lot actually. Sometimes it works better than others. ;)
