Hello dear Costantino,
Wonderfull capture of this glass artwork in Athens. Good pov and compo. The orange fassade of the building at right creates a perfect contrast.
TFS and best regards

L'effet sur le spectateur est manifeste. Cette sculpture ne manque pas d'originalité.
Très bonne présentation générale.
Une image forte.
Très bonne soirée.

Composition is very good. However the statue is very looking strange !! How it is made?

A most unusual statue, but certainly an effective depiction of a man running. I like how you have framed the shot, nicely counterbalanced by the red building. Excellent technical presentation with first class,light, colours and sharpness. I could grow to quite like that statue; it makes for a fascinating photographic subject.

Cette statue nous donne l'effet d'un flou de mouvement.C'est très original.

A statue that looks as strong wind swirled gust around it.
Nicely spotted and collected good contrast against the city houses in red bricks, and the blue sky.
Have a nice day,

An artwork which is unique and stand out. Wonderful piece of work which epitomoses and shows well the fast motion of a runner. The building in the BG stands for staticness...a contrast with the dynamic sculpture

A very nice capture of this artwork. I like the tonal contrast it makes with the building in the background.

The sculpture is so interesting with the original materiel. It could be a god way to create own ideas.
Thank you Costantino for your inspiration and I wish you the best days of Greek foot in Brazil!

very beautiful sculpture, creative and very interesting. I liked this angle catching well the monument and the buildings around. in some aspects the image remember me Samothrace's victory.
macjake (55520) 2014-06-18 4:13

This is a very original sculpture, even from the thumbnail, it really gives us a great sense of movement! Good capture!
