Imagine...You're in the middle of nowhere. Mojave Desert,Nevada. At the doorsteps of Death Valley.
Some guy by the name Albert Szukalski - eccentric genius - had placed his Da Vinci' sculpted figures right there under the scorching, merciless sun.

Have you paid visit to my
Polonaise on TEarth site lately ?

Very interesting picture! Such a strange sculpture! It is very well composed! I like the strong and dark color contrast here! That photo has a lot of punch and a good visual impact! Well done! Michel

the brightness of white is excellent, however, i'd probably composed a bit different - it seems to me a bit too close or more of heaven could be included, or probably i'd just choose a different frame. i have this feeling that you've cropped too much from the top (probably it's really the effect of this frame).
otherwise - really good job!

wow, very mysterious photo george, all the way down to the colors. well done!

Hi George

A good rendition of this amazing sculpture, with excellent lighting, sharpness, & contrast. Congratulations!

Sure is an interesting sight! I think I drove through Beatty last summer and didn't see that. Well done on the composition and good light. TFS!

interesting picture,the brightness of white is excellent.Well done.

Impactandte la fotografía,, así como la escultura en si misma. Los colores muy conseguidos dotando a la imagen de una gran intriga ciertamente inquietante. Enhorabuena

Hi George,

All your series is very interesting but this is the most impressive, till now ...
Like the contrast and that shniy white.

tfs and have a nice weekend,

Could scare you! mirage? ghosts? Looks menacing I am sure if you are drunk or in a full moon!

Too strange for words . . . and cool at the same time!


fantastic idea from you George,
nice result and great idea.
very nice. well done.

Polonaise on TE: I came to TL to look for you. You will continue posting after the one week is over? I'm one of your fans although I critiqued your photo only once ... maybe about one year ago. But I do regularly look at your gallery. Take care. Latiff.

what have they done....

Hi George,
Glad to see you back, I do like your different approach to photography and honesty.

What a weird sculpture this is. Love the way you've captured that one. Definitly the right mood, almost spooky, even in daylight. Welcome back.
