    Hey folks, I have something to post again... finally.

    I was out taking photos of the chinese new year celebrations in London yesterday... (the 230 photos i still have to sort through) and I took a snap of a statue in a fountain in trafalgar square..

    I showed it to Arty and he suggested I made it balck and white, so here we have both versions so that you can give me your thoughts.

    I also like the b/w version more, more emphasis on the statue itself.

    A "colour fan" speaking here, saying: Black and white is ever so much better for this photo! :)
    Who is he?
    Why's he fighting to hard against the fish?

    I think the cntours on the statues back show more in the B&W and I think they look great... but what initially caught my attention was that the statue was so blue... argh I'm torn :)

    Scurra, I would still like to know who the figure represents? Is it a fairy tale character, or why is he fighting so hard against all those fish?

    Sorry LaFoto i'm not sure what it represents, I can't seem to find anything on the web either... It seems people rather focus on nelson's column and the other more well known statues in the area. :(

    That is in LONDON?
    I would never have expected a statue like this there!
    Well, thanks for looking.
    And again: thanks for sharing.
