    Statue at Shugborough

    I know it's a bit of a cheek taking photos at the seat of Patrick Lichfield, but as I wandered through the grounds I came across this statue. I think it portrays a primative feel, especially in the long grass. I hope I've managed to capture this and contrast it with the main house in the background.

    I think a real life one would be good. I've not been to Shugborough.

    That would look frightening after the sun starts to set.

    Clive, try cropping off the entire left hand side of this image and make it a vertical orientation. This will give more prominence to the figure. There will still be a lot of dark from the tree branches, which will help direct your eye to the figure. Also the house may show a little, but it is hardly noticeable because the chimney, window, down spout and other features will not be visible.

    Thanks for the advice Ken, valid criticism. I did try a crop similar to this, but wasn't happy with it - personal preference I guess.
