Hi James,
Fantastic texture and DOF enhanced by the appropriate blurred BG!
Very nice colors and subject.

Hi james,
A very nice shot and a beautiful contribution for the Friday theme with nice details,here I can see her both eyes despite the shot is being framed from her side but still produced very nice details,the golden reflection on the statue and the creamy bokeh in BG with lovely contrast colors are an amazing work,well done my friend.

Thank you for sharing
Have a nice weekend

Hi James,

A nice contribution to the Friday's theme of "Statue".
The picture is razor-sharp and clarity is amazing. I like the blurry BG too which provides great contrast to this interesting statue. The sharpness and POV are well done.

Great work!

Thanks and regards,
