Photo taken in Alcochete - Portugal

Sculpture of a bull and a bullfighter, made in bronze in 1989 by Sérgio Stikinni. The sculpture have the following inscription: "On Bull, the courage and the fun"

I'm not a big fan of bullfights (they are one of the more tradicional things of my hometown along with the salt mines), but i found this sculpture fantastic, so here it is

The town of Alcochete is located on the south bank of the River Tagus, near the Tagus Estuary Nature Reserve. Salt has long-been one of the main industries here, and saltpans can still be seen to the north and south of the town.
The town's foundation dates back to the 7th century, after the Moors conquered Lisbon. Its name derives from the Arabic word for kiln, as there have been many found in the area.

Have fun,
Regards from Portugal
António

Olá António,

Bom enquadramento!Eu também não sou adepto da tourada.Quanto á coragem não á dúvidas é preciso muita para pisar na arena,quanto ao divertimento acho que o touro não se deve divertir muito.:)
A foto está fantástica,adorei a cor do céu e o angulo escolhido.
Abraço,
Fernando

Nice POV and very well composed picture of the sculpture looking into the clouds. Well done

Don

Ola Antonio

I like the graphism of the dark sculpture against the blue sky. It almost appears the bull is about to toss the man into the blue void. Obrigado & parabens!

Buen tratamiento de la luz. Me gusta el encuadre. El cielo ayuda en la composición.

Embora seja completamente contra touradas, o que aqui está em questão é a fotografia, que está muito boa!
