Hi Ron

Thanks for joining in the fun. I've added this to the Friday theme & hope others can find it okay. A good upward pov with the gold leaf contrasting superbly against the rather drab colors of the surroundings. Only the faded green & red trim of the window are even able to compete. At first I thought you had been to Thailand as Buddha statues there are gilded. Good sharpness & the ornate details in the stonework & textural & tonal nuances are superb, with a wonderful diffused light.

I like the immense contrast you managed to get in this superb contribution to this Friday's theme, Ron!

The golden tones of the statue stand so well against the facade of the building.
Sharpness and POV are excellent, and light is well handled.
Nice work!

Kind regards,

HI Ron, indeed this golden statue is an eyecatcher, perfectly captured, perfect sharpness, very good POV.
Regards Rose

Hello Ronald,he is an eye catcher standing there bedecked in gold!
Although he is the main focus of the shot, there are lots of interesting details to enjoy besides.The masonery is in fine condition, and I like the inclusion of the leaded window too.
All in excellent sharpness.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Indeed! It looks very regal especially in gold and the low pov! Good dof with sharp details. Wonderful lighting. Well done, tfs.

Hello Ronald :)

He looks this gold statue fantastically and contrasts
with the grey wall about interesting architecture perfectly.
Very beautiful in colours and light the work.
You registered yourself in the Friday subject perfectly.

With best wishes.

> Beautiful golden sculpture of this
Knight Templario. The location
His architecture is wonderful, with all these details.
Good eye catcher.


Is it real gold??? Get up there and snap off a leg or an arm! This stands out really well against the darker concrete! Nice posting for the Statue Theme!

The golden colors is really nice against the concrete. I wonder why lots of old statue portrait as a knight :)

Bonjour Ronald

Good contribution for the theme. Almost a two tone image gold and gray except for the windows. Did you try to desaturate that area? May be it would amphase the two tones effect. Nice work and TFS


I tried a WS with desaturation.
