This is a close-cropped shot of the sculpture the "Rape of the Sabines." The detail of the musculature is truly amazing. This statue is located in Florence, Italy. Post-processing involved contrast enhancement and sharpening only. This is a color shot--the marble is this near-gray tone.

Stunning use of the camera lens to bring to life the power of the sculpture. The tight crop is very effective and creative. Well done.

The most powerful of your Italy images, simply artistic. B&W would really be useful.
