I took this picture of one of the magnificient Bernini Angel sculptures that pave the bridge leading the the famous Castel San'Angelo in Rome. It was a beautiful, clear day, and I enjoyed the whirl of the cloud echoing the Baroque twists and turns of the angel's garment. (I didn't have a digital camera at the time, I used the scanned picture here)

Great idea.. angel with a bit of sky.. looking upwards is the right perspective here. Nice work Sarolta.

Nice POV. The only cloud seems to coat the head of the sculpture. Nice composition for this kind of photo.

Very impressive low POV! Nice addition of the sky! Nice shot
PS: Be careful with the noise, especially at the sky. Use Neatimage to fix it :)

Wonderful shot...I love sky contrasts in detail (as you can see in my gallery)...and I'm from Rome too and I'm very happy with this shot...anyway it's "Castel San'Angelo" not "Castello di Angelo" ;)

Looking upwards along with the sky makes this shot impressive. Well captured.

the angle you chose is perfect...really showing some major aspects of baroque art...mixing the sculpture and sky in that way...I really like it...

Beautiful capture, Sarolta! This is an original view of the statuer, a remarkable one I must admit!
Yeah, I loved Rome too, with all the architecture and sculptures and vast history...and all with the Italian mentality added to it even more...a magnificent city.

You chose an intersting angle for the angel.
