Hello Francis, a good PoV using the familiar Luzzus in the bg.The sculptures are quite charming; I think it only right that the fishermen should be recognised for the hard and sometimes dangerous work that they do.
I would like to see an alternative PoV of the little boy and his cat perhaps in the future?
Good work.
Regards Jean.

Hi Francis.

Another unique statue on offer today, I love this idea of the figures being in a scenelike this, so much more nteresting then a statue on a plinth. Youe beautiful harbour is clear to see in the backdrop, the light portraying numerous colours for us, neat work, TFS

Stv :0))

> Ciao Francis

Interesting look of these sculptures in the sea.
Note that there is a good space, both to enjoy this beautiful view
Colorful boats, as also sculptures by area.
Fantastic view!

Hi Francis

I see both a boy & his baby sister at right, in addition to the cat & the fisherman. Good sharpness and excellent warm cold color contrasts between the blue sea / sky & the reddish orange tinted brick pedestal. Tfs!

Very nice. For me, i think would like to have a bit lower angle. A slight halos from the dodging on the fg :D

Francis, lovely composition, good POV, light and exposure.. Superb contribution to the Friday Theme.

Lovely composition including these statues and fishing boats. A fine inclusion for this weeks theme.

Bonjour Francis
Une idée originale du sculpteur bien mise en valeur par l'angle de prise de vue qui montre aussi l'entrée du port
HDR discret et bienvenu
Bon dimanche

Hi Francis,
Lovely PoV to take this statue, the harbor in the background is a good scene, not easy to take in such strong sunlight but you have managed it well. Best wishes
