nice image of the monument with the clock behind it, very clear and bright. Excellent sharpness and light management, beautiful blue sky as the background.
Thanks and all the best.

This is a very fine photograph of a very imposing statue. The king himself was probably quite an imposing fellow too!
Very nicely taken from an excellent viewpoint and I really like the ornate clock just peeking round from behind him. The lighting on the statue is lovely and I suspect was quite low angle at 5.30 p.m. in October - it really brings out all the features of the wonderful sculpture very well.
Good lighting, perfect exposure, fine colours and exquisite sharpness.
P.S. I've just noticed that this was taken nearly six years ago with a much simpler, smaller and older camera than your present one - the result is really excellent!
