[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Piece by JosÚ Sim§es de Almeida.
Place - Jardim da Estrela, Lisboa

It has been vandalized, hence the ink on her breasts, but I decided to keep it that way.
What do you think?

On PP: Lightroom - Separated statue from background, treated color differently for both. Some dodge and burn to hightlight the features.

Hello, Lauro. I must admit that the statute looks very nice in the surroundings however the vandalize issue bothers me but I'm glad you kept it in the photo. Good composition, a very apt title for the picture. Sharpness and exposure is good. Thanks for sharing.

  • Great

Hola Lauro
Esta escultura es muy realista en sus detalles, y muy bella a pesar de estar mutilada. Buena exposiciˇn y nitidez.


Hi Lauro
Please understand that this is my opinion only and many may disagree.
Although the light is ok, it is such that the concentration is on the vandalism and on the statue,s knees. I find the depth of field to be too much so the background intrudes into the scene and distrcts. Finally, the lamp post bothers me.
Sorry, my opinion only.

I like it ,
Nice composed and nice angle choose for this shot, well job

salut lauro,
c'est dommage vandaliser des statues..

I think the "vandalism" makes the photo interesting. I would crop the image to a square (let the lantern out of the photo)and would try some manipulation
