The statue in the foreground is that of Allan Ramsay located in Princes Street Gardens.
Allan Ramsay, who almost single-handedly revived Scottish literature after a long period in hibernation. Without him, there might never have been a Robert Fergusson or Robert Burns. His statue deservedly takes pride of place in the city, occupying a position mid-way along its main thoroughfare. In the background you can see Edinburgh Castle. Edinburgh Castle is a historic fortress which dominates the skyline of the city of Edinburgh, Scotland from its position on the Castle Rock.

Prominently above town, the Edinburgh castle dominating its skyline. View from the famous street and the statue, gave good scale to appreciate the high and massive cliff where the caste located.
Fine photojob under mildcday;light.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

The distance between the statue and the castle is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details, the colors of the statue and of the castle. There is a good contrast beyween the colors of the picture. Have a nice day.

This is a very neat and well balanced composition. The view of the castle is perfectly framed by the trees and the statue, which is well placed against the pleasant sky.

The statue makes a fine frame for the mass of the castle in this carefully composed image. Well exposed with excellent control over depth of field. The image benefits from a pleasing soft light and lovely natural tones. Very good clarity.

You place the statue excellent on these place completely out of the centre of the picture.
This gives more space for the Edinburgh Castle in background.
Wonderful mountain landscape, and splendid panorama view about these area.
Excellent composition and nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

J'aime beaucoup ce point de vue qui donne beaucoup de profondeur à la composition. De plus, la contre plongée apporte de l'ampleur. Les détails ressortent très bien.

A splendid composition, showing us the beauty of the impressive fortress, on the high rocky walls of the mountain sculpture in the foreground is the ideal complement.
A colorful perfect very natural.
The image is very bright with optimal clarity.

Interesting composition with the statue as focal point, good sharpness, and the castle in the BG, well managed.

It's a beautiful view and you show it with a good compo, using the statue (which is also the subject of the photo, of course) and the trees. Maybe it would be even better if you corrected the perspective, because it's not that pleasant to the eye having the statue leaning.

very nice the placement of the statue of Allan Ramsay in the frame as we can see and the castle on the top of the hill to dominating the area.The dense foliage on the sides of the frame creates a beautiful decoration element in it.
