    I Like it but why not frame it verticle instead of horizontal the fence doesnt help the shot I think.

    I was confused about this. I think that the fence is a support to the right of the image.

    Ok I like this one .... but rather than the fence .... which is a part of the statue's dias, the bush to the left is a little distracting .... but overall I like it ... good capture .... and thanks for sharing :)

    Our mysteryscribe here is a great fan of vertical frames, it shows ;) ... and while I understand your compositional aspects about this frame here, Matt, I still feel the statue is a bit too centred. If this were mine, I'd crop in from above to just a millimetre above the monstrance, and then in from the left to get rid of as much of the bush as you can (in case you want to keep up the custom size of a print) or all of it ... or clone out whichever parts still stick into the frame. That is my idea about it.

    Else I like how you worked with the light almost all against you.
