Current phoo was taken in Pszczew / Lubuskie in West Poland during the Big Sculpture Festival (pol: Plener dużej Rzeźby) which takes place here each summmer for 7 years. More information about the village (Pszczew has about 4000 inhabitants) and the nearby area is located http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pszczew.
Although I come from the South of Poland (Silesia region) I've been visiting (summers only) Pszczew and surrounding area of lakes for over 15 years. That's why I love the piece over here and will come back in the future too. There is plenty of nature-based local attractions, like lakes, fishing, diving, swimming, boating, bird watching and also nearby places: Miedzyrzecz fortifications and Nietoperek bat reserve.
Colors are natural. I used C-Polarizer from Hoya. The only one thing adjusted was the sharpness.

This is a great shot with an outstanding sky. The sweeping clouds give the shot a sense of motion and direction. The carvings are very good with the great sky providing a fine backdrop for the scene. The lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness and DOF.

Gdyby nie dwa szczegóły (rower i transparent) było by pięknie. Temat ciekawy, dobrze pokazany, niebo pięknie dopełnia całość. Podoba mi się.

A ja mam znajomego, który rzeźbi w drewnie, zwłaszcza kobiety ;P
Rower zbędny, ale mało zauważalny. Niesamowite niebo i dwie rzeźby przyciągają uwagę odbiorcy, bardzo dobry kadr i kolory.
