[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A sculpture (or replica thereof) by famed American sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens (1848-1907), perhaps best known for his exquisite designs of US coinage and for a statue (not this one), Diana of the Tower, purportedly of famed beauty Evelyn Nesbit and featured in the novel and movie "Ragtime".

This sculpture resides at the Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site in the Connecticut River Valley of western New Hampshire, a magical place full of photographic possibilities. When I visited here in (I think) 1993, the place was not at all crowded on a weekday and the staff seemed unconcerned with my use of a tripod both indoors and out.


I am unsure of the lens and exposure, but the film is Fujichrome 50, which has IMO the most pleasing tonal rendition of any slide film ever made. A lovely pool in this outdoor courtyard forced me to set up a little closer to the subject than I would have preferred.

PP: tilt compensation, sharpening, cloning out an interpretive placard, and framing. The tonal rendition is almost dead-on to the original slide. Thanks for any comments!
