[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Art in the Park is one of the great themes of the Botanical Gardens here in Hamilton.

This year they featured a Zimbabwean stone sculpture exhibit, Zimsculpt.

Over 300 hand-made sculptures were displayed amongst the blooms of Hendrie Park Gardens, creating a unique outdoor gallery where visitors can view sculpture.

Many thanks for your comment on ‘Laughing Kookaburra’

Hi Sky,
Yes I like this B&W composition a well balanced composition, although the text is quite large and a bit distractive in my opinion. Nevertheless a fine posting my dear Sky.

Beautiful visual.
I adore pictures in B/W.
Beautiful capture of this two and their postures are interesting, as if they talked for a good time there.
Sharpness, light and POV are superb.TFS.

Hallo Sky
You transformed beautifully this sweet moment of tender gossip!

Hi Sky,
It may have been Art in the Park, but you just made it Art by Sky. This could be an Art Poster...excellent work, the black and white is perfect, great contrasts, and excellent work in the framing and title...wow...really nice. TFS

thanks for virtual visit of this outdoor exposition ...

Hi Sky

A fantastic tonal range in this superb b&w image. Well composed with no part of the frame wasted & perfect symmetry between the 2 sculptures. Well done!

Hello Sky,
I like what you did with the black and white here!
Contrasty and a bit grainy but still with well defined textures...
Pleasant composition!

Hello Sky!

I missed your return! Glad to see you around again. Cool initiative and exibition. They look great in this natural environment. I might suggest here a few steps to your left ( Watch your step :)))) ) in order to get the shoes as well.

Wunderbares Motiv und mir gefällt die Schwarz/Weiß Darstellung sehr gut.
Viele Grüße aus dem kalten Deutschland, dafür mit strahlend blauen Himmel

Hello Sky, well this is a good b/w image of the monuments.

Well captured, nice tones and very sharp!

Take care! Yan :)

ps: Thx so much for the great review on "Joffre Lakes, Upper Lake of the 3 Lakes" :)


Hi Sky
Presenting these sculptures in B&W and high contrast is a excellent idea. They look quite comfortable with the photographer present (°U°).


Hi Sky,
This is a very well done B&W image. The tonal range is awesome. Good detail captured, composed well and taken at an excellant POV. Very nice sky! I bet these sculptures was awesome to view while wandering around.

Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Hallo Sky,
wunderbare Kontraste, tolle Lichtstimmung und eine absolut klasse.
Alles gutes in neues Jahr.
Danke für alles.

Hi Sky,
Great choice for a black and white conversion. It brought out the details and textures really good.
These sculptures look very beautiful and really fit the enviroment of the park. A great photo, with excellent details and the prefect chosen DOF.

Interesting picture. The leaf pattern of the bush in the background gives more richness and variety to the composition, complementing the smoothness of the surface of the sculptures. I like the white framing instead of a black one...Excellent choice!
TFS! All The best,
