    A few shots of some, uh ...interesting(?) outdoor sculpture. Harsh mid-day light. Shot with the NEX 6 and 16-50 kit lens.

    DSC00746. DSC00750. DSC00751. DSC00776.

    I like the last one with the kid next to this big thing. :thumbup: The other ones are nice too, but in the first one the harsh lighting detracts from the image for me.

    Thanks for the feedback, Ad. I agree with you about the harsh light. It was a beautiful day, but there wasn't much to be done about the light when I was there. It was a good lesson for me.

    Agree, the kid with the stomp skull thing is a neat shot.

    I actually like the first. Could you maybe post-process it to reduce the contrast of the natural stuff and leave the harsh light on the statue? I think the light on the statue looks quite powerful.

    Thanks. Maybe I could do something in PP if I had anything but very basic skills in that department :). All in time, I suppose. :biggrin:

    Ooooh! That's a very interesting challenge. Do you mind if the rest of us take a crack at it? :D

    I just played around a little with the Nik plugins (HDR Efex Pro & Color Efex Pro) in Aperture. Got a little carried away, I'm afraid. :p

    Well, I don't know. I don't usually go for that sort of unnatural HDR look, but somehow it seems almost appropriate given the subject matter of the image, which is already abstract. :biggrin:
