My favorite part of this photo is the color shift from top to bottom.

Sometimes I wonder if a different angle of the statue would have been

better.

Nice shot, good exposure; I especially like the color and texture. My remark would be that the angle is a bit undefined, especially since you have such strong architectural elements- it is neither aligned nor twisted. I don't know if the space there permits it, but you should try and play more with it.

Otherwise, very nice indeed.

I like it Travis. I think a wider lens may give you an interesting perspective, but I don't see anything wrong with this. I really like the lighting. Well done

I love the overall feel of the picture. My thoughts would simply be that you have a very busy background there; perhaps you could change the angle and use a different lens to isolate a smaller part of the background, for instance the archways; you could still get a sense of the ornate architecture from behind the colums and arches and you might improve the balance a little.

Wide angle, looking up at the statue from the front, with the molding forming a "V", not too symmetrical, about like thumb and forefinger making a checkmark, with the statue facing the index finger, so to speak.

Hi Travis,

I like this photo very much and also agree with most of the previous comments.

Yes, the color shift is interesting and very pleasing - very unusual.

I think this is very close to a great shot but missing something, hard to put my finger on it.

I think it's the placement of the statue, mainly its pedestal relative to the rest (the silhouette is great, by the way - a no-detail part to play against the very detailed background). Maybe a wide angle would allow you to try different variations, one or more of which would be exactly "it!"

Do you live close enough to DC to go back and try some more? If so, I definitely encourage you to do it. In fact I may just join you :-) (I live in Annapolis)

Best regards,SteveR
