The facade of the theater seems very beautiful , and the statue was very well shown. I'd rather have a more wide view, showing the entire building, or instead a close up on the statue. Any way nice details were shonw, which was good. Well done!

Your attention was on the statue, yet I see a remarkable facade of the theatre behind.
Maybe a wider perspective would be more adequate, but this'd be my preferences only.
Nice view on the statue, we know see that back in th 17th century people had 50+/- yearsof lifespan, and he was right in mid-scale of the statistic's.

your composition is very good and you've achieved an effective association between the statue of the great author and the facade of the theatre. I like the association of the scriptures too. I think that the view would be more comfortable if there was more space and a stronger chromatic contrast at the top of the composition. Depth and sharpness are wonderful. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

The fg flowers add a welcome splash of colour. Good sharpness and a nice upward pov on the statue. I might have added a little yellow red to add some warming colours. Good sharpness on the embossed text. Bon weekend!
