Noah and the four winds statue at chester zoo, taken with the Nikon compact, point and shoot. The back ground blur was accentuated to make the statue standout more. Reeds in the foreground were left in to add depth to the image, maybe not to everyones taste but I think it works well.
I Truly wish you had removed Blurred couple in background, then it would have been an 11. Beautiful Post Ron....Favorite!
10 for me Ron. Great image.
9+ ........... Blurred background spin me out in HDR, But the rest is superb :)
I like the composition, but not the bottom.
Beautiful image Ron !!
I like this a lot but would like to see the couple cloned out (a bit distracting).
I'm disturbed by the background, but the processe is very nice
Superb post Ron, only query is the statue's right shoulder as you view, the crown looking clothing looks blurred compared to the left. also agree with Ed ref the couple in background...
To be honest I intended taking the couple out, but just completely forgot about it in the end:)
great for a compact
I like it.
