    Brilliant photo. I was gonna suggest moving a few steps to the left but then i saw how you'd framed lord Nelson. Great sky aswell.

    Is it dramatic enough? It is, in fact, terrifying! Great, great.

    I was wondering why we should be looking at the back of the horse and lord Nelson? Certainly Lord Nelson's face is dramatic in this piece?

    I like the picture, but to me it's neither one thing nor the other. I like the idea - Do you remember the statue on the 4th plinth making a similar point a couple of years ago?

    IMO the Nelson statue is too insignificant from the angle you have chosen to make him look insignificant, but the fact that he's there detracts from the silhouette of the horse and the clouds.
