    Hey, cool stuff. I like the composition. Unfortunately, your subject -- the statue -- is a bit underexposed. It's quite dark compared to the background (which isn't surprising -- the sky IS bright), but that means that my eye is drawn to the background and not the subject. Sometimes a bit of dodging can help, or manually tweaking the exposure.

    And for the heck of it, I'd love to see you get a bit lower down, so that you are looking up at the statue from lower. That might add an interesting angle to things.

    Overall, good job -- now you just need to tweak a bit.

    thanks for pointing that out. i did a quick retouch and yes you were right. about the angle i have a few more perspectives but nothing spectacular and it will be a while until i get there again but when i will i'll try some more. thanks

    I like the second one! It's a much more dramatic angle. Very nice. There is a bit of noise in the sky -- maybe that's from the postprocessing?

    yeah i have a bad habit of working on a picture, saving it. than i think it needs something else too so i open the saved picture and edit it again so i end up with a lower q picture. i don't save the psd files neither :)) i know i should but i never quite get around to organize so many files.
