Wonderful sculpture, that this termination in bronze, highly polished, made to reflect everything that is in its environment, adding to its beauty of design, its various shades of color, as a function of these reflexes.
An image to enjoy with its beautiful color, high brightness and perfect sharpness.

Excellent sculpture close-up photo with very nice colors, perfect light, very good clarity. Superb reflections, nicely framed in vertical format. The well-chosen tight crop eliminates all unwanted distractions.
Very well done.

Hello Ike - Your shot shows off the fluid lines, depth and volumes of this attractive sculpture very well. I like the contrast of the reflective and matt surfaces which give the piece interesting textural details and variations in the way the light is reflected.
Have a peaceful weekend

This sculpture is quite beautiful and certainly lives up to its name The bronze and copper tones sit well against that glorious blue sky. Superb capture with excellent colours and clarity.

très jolie, élégante sculpture dorée, sa brillance avec les reflets, très belle présentation
ourania (45088) 2014-08-08 10:12
flames, hands and wings, the sculpture evokes all these things to me at the same time. I like very much the clarity and dimensions through which we can perceive and study the elegant sculpture. The fluidity of the textures and colours (an impression enhanced by the reflections) is very attractive. The contrast provided by the surroundings and the sky is delightful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a peaceful weekend,

Great image! Many thanks for your note. It is helpful to understand the sculpture much more better. Well spotted and composed view with a lovely natural tonality.
Have a nice weekend!
carlo62 (47549) 2014-08-08 16:02
non avrei detto che si trattava di 4 metri, un bel lavoro, molto pulito ed essenziale. La statua è una perfetta stilizzazione delle lingue di fuoco che scaturiscono da un grande incendio. Belli i riflessi che si riescono a vedere sulla statua.
pierrefonds (65904) 2014-08-08 16:17
I like the way the light is making the colors to shine. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the sculpture. It is clear ands aharp. Have a nice day.
photoray (13981) 2014-08-08 16:23
Beautiful golden intertwining flame, with the symbolic palms open to the sky.
Have a peaceful and rewarding weekend,

Greetings from St. Inagoes, MD. I am using our friends' computer to catch up with critiques. I think I have seen this, but there was a wedding party around it, so could not go near. The reflections from the rightmost surfaces are quite clear and pleasant.
abmdsudi (53703) 2014-08-08 22:14
A striking composition and a feat to the eye and how well this huge artwork stands out emphasising the shapes strongly resembling the glowing flame within the surroundings without any distraction, backed up by good lighting and saturated colours to illustrate this piece. It's sharp in focus, awesomely detailed and the wow super metallic shiners there! with glimpses of fabulous reflections to vitalise the image. Extremely effective and attractive urban decor. Very well done shot, Congrats.

An interesting study of modern sculpture. an i saw this flame because of you. Thanks for your sharing my friend.
Have a nice weekend.

A beautiful work of art and a very well taken picture. Well cropped and perfect sharpness. Interesting note.
jhm (152314) 2014-08-09 1:28
What a wonderful clear picture with this wonderful statue.
Maybe one advice, in future I would try one point to photographing with a blur background.
This would the statue yet more give a wonderful view.
Very well composition, nice presentation too.
Nice done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
timecapturer (49288) 2014-08-09 3:18
a distinctive and expressive artwork this, and you have captured it so beautifully. I love the play of light here and it brings out the idea of flames reaching up into the blue sky so perfectly. Stylish imagery - I like it!
Enjoy your weekend - B.

very nice and modern scalpture of the flame in the Bloomfield garden,with its upper part to outline parfect on the blue sky.
I like the created reflections on its gleaming as the excellent presentation.

NorthernLight (2383) 2014-08-10 1:54
I really like this picture because of the colors and great clarity. The sculpture like polished copper, flashing and gleaming in the sun against a bright blue sky.
Very nice to look at.
all the best
papagolf21 (101040) 2014-08-10 2:46
Bonjour, cher Ike,
Une sculpture très contemporaine, mais appréciée. Le travail de l'artiste est original ainsi que la matière utilisée.
Très bonne prise de vue.
annjackman (21895) 2014-08-10 4:28
The highly shiny surface of the sculpture makes an impressive picture against the blue sky. I love the reflections in it. A wonderful piece of art perfectly framed by you.
Kind Regards, Ann
jcpix (13916) 2014-08-10 8:35
This is really a beautiful sculpture, and the bronze coloring really shines under the bright daylight. Certainly a perfect choice for the vertical composition, and you were wise to leave ample surrounding space for it to "breathe." Very balanced exposure as well, everything appears as it would be in person. An all around solid subject and result, very nicely done. Enjoy the new week. Take good care.
Miguel82 (27674) 2014-08-10 19:07
That sculpture really looks like moose antlers Ike, excellent record, good framing and resolution, greetings
jemaflor (96849) 2014-08-10 23:43
Very beautiful monument, congratulations for the artist, well presented on your shot, interesting effect with the golden light, tfs.
Royaldevon (38522) 2014-08-11 1:42
This is a beautiful sculpture.
I love how its textures have been captured so clearly, burnished by the sunlight and reflecting the distorted features around.
Have a lovely day,
ChrisJ (113331) 2014-08-11 2:01
I see several themes in one here. Firstly 2 entwined flames which is the original intent, secondly 2 Salvadore Dali like melted forks twisted around each other and finally a pair of hands perhaps in prayer? A nice abstract shot with many interpretations. Good sharpness as always. Tfs!
nikkitta (17066) 2014-08-11 12:04
Hands or flames together going up in a beautiful sculpture where I admire the golden bright and reflections of the materials
Good vertical capture contrasting with vegetation and sky
Good work, enjoy watching
macjake (67534) 2014-08-11 16:19
bronze and stainless steel. I hope the bronze parts of it dont' rust and turn ugly because its a beautiful sculpture.
elegant forms and elegant lines.
as Luciano says, i'm not usually a fan of modern art but this one does look attractive and is tasteful.
clic (16971) 2014-08-12 7:21
This sculpture rather appears as two forearms and palms twisted in a supplication gesture for a permanent ceasefire.
Quite an attractive monument, indeed.
cornejo (41839) 2014-08-12 9:20
Hello Ike, very good picture of this beautiful and interesting sculpture, beautifully captured in this interesting picture with good sharpness, beautiful light, color and quality. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.

jmdias (64026) 2014-08-14 2:11
excellent view of this big public sculpture. I liked its shapes and the way you are presenting it with this vertical format. nice contrast with the blue sky.
emka (96603) 2014-08-15 0:23

An original and shining sculpture! I like it and also the reflections you captured.
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-08-15 7:20
Awesome art creation, it looks like regardless of where the sun there is always light refracting from it. Nicely captured with sharp details. Very well done, tfs.
Noel_Byrne (31008) 2014-08-16 6:47
A beautiful sculpture, and you captured it under really wonderful light here. The refection of light in its gold tones is very nice. It looks like a flame, but it also looks like two hand intertwined in a caring manner. Really admirable work.
npecanhuk (75156) 2014-08-16 14:40
Very interesting and attractive sculpture!
Beautiful picture too!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, vertical format, chosen pov and composition really pleased me!

Enjoy your week-end,
