Really beautiful exposure, Deniz. The angle enhances the contrast and shadow beautifully, and the vignetting really serves to focus the attention on this stunning piece of art. Thanks!

The black and white format is perfect for this type of sculpture - a little surrealistic, but with pleasant shapes and forms. Vignette effect adds nice framing to the image and brings out this interesting unique subject.

I like this finish (Silver Efex?) There is a dark majesty to this.
