[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
You could ask: Who the heck would create those raised from dead, figures of Da Vinci's "Last Supper" . Who would placed them in the middle of nowhere, under blasting sun of Death Valley desert.
Well, perhaps the guy who was born in Nazi concentration camp (!!!) from Polish prisoner mother, being there for being Polish and a Belgian father (who's status in the camp is rather difficult to establish), but that Belgian paternity help them to survive in better conditions after being liberated by American Army.
More of his biography here
He passed away in 2004
Let's hope his incredible work will survive centuries.

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

Very interesting composition to show this intriguing sculpture. It is not easy to take pictures of other people's art but you have shown it very well. I am not certain what you did with the sky but there seems to be some reddish lines & spots in it. I must admit that I am not too keen on your frame but that is a very personal preference for simpler frames - I am a bit of minimalist when it comes to framing for TL. Nice light & good sharpness on the sculpture. Well done!

Nicely composed, George! Love the high contrast as well; gives a nice 3D effect to the picture. Now, explain to me how you can put a Nikkor lens on a Canon body!

There's certainly a spooky feeling in this photo for me. Perhaps because the sky looks disjointed from the ground/planks the figures are on (as if they and the platform and I are in some other realm). Striking composition, with great use of light and textures. Ditto Tinman re the frame. This image I think only needed a very simple frame.

I read the entire story!!!! I love it. I love the sculptures, the story, the love of art! Creative people often have a hard time in the world!

Particular composition, Mr G! Abstract, nearly...interesting assembly of colours and shadows. Good frame!
Makes me feel awkward :]



I find this image to be powerful George! Love the blue sky the texture of the robes and flooring. Excellent positioning and depth of field.

very nice George,
this is really art and great shot.
very nice lighting and concept.
