This picture also taken on the same "Purim" street carnival, and I found that her golden costume was in perfect contrast to the green foliage on BG.
Moment of concentration during her performance. A goddess came to town…

Good Morning Ike,
I find these living statues most interesting, probably because they have such control where I can be a little impulsive!
Your dof is excellent, capturing the details with incredible sharpness. You are right, the b/g works well to make the figure stand out.
Did you see those living statues in Florence? I particularly liked the one dressed as Tutankamun!
Have a lovely Sunday,

The tree is framing well the artist. the point of view is showing the details and colors of the costume and of the performance of the artist. The morning light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

I am so thrilled that I could open up your image after 20 attempts. beautiful shot with golden color costumes.I like the way she is sitting like a statue without a bit of movement. The color contrast is excellent. I like the slight blurry background. A good sharp image with excellent colors.

artisti di strada che regalano sempre piacevoli performance con i loro abiti e la loro gestualità.
Ben ripresa la scena con l'oro del costume a colpire chi osserva la tua foto,

Fantastic photos with the divine in a gold suit and green background.
Perfect contrasting color, light and optrina.
A wonderful photo-work.

nice the view of the golden clothes,but sorry this looks like more as a man than a woman.The characteristic of the face and the head is coming from a man according my mind.Never mind it's a good photo with the light management to brings out the details of this human been.
Have a good day,Danos

I think that this is a superb image. The contrast between the golden costume and the green vegetation in BG is really fabulous. You captured a nice scene with an excellent quality.
Congratulations and TFS.

I like to watch street performances and street artists. In fact, gold robe of mime well contrasts with green, dark background. Excellent image quality.
צהריים טובים. אני אוהב לראות מופעי רחוב ואמני רחוב. למעשה, חלוק זהב בניגוד היטב עם הרקע פנטומימה, ירוק כהה. איכות תמונה מעולה. שלך.

Hi Ike, Interesting capture of this gold goddess, great as you say against the green foliage. Well managed light, (looks bright day). Like the reflection in the ball. Cheers Iain.

Hi dear Ike
Oh yes, a very pretty Goddess in town. Her golen costume certainly attracts the light well and as you say, it contrasts well against the greenery. I also like the sallowr depth of field usd for the background. Nice work!

Ciao Ike, fantastic portrait of this artist in great pose, excellent clarity, splendid light and colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

He looks like a sculpture on the thumbnail. And I was wondered by this artwork. We know there are not so lot of human sculptures in Israel. Good colour combination. Well seen.
eldancer1 (16984) 2012-04-06 9:12
Awesome capture of this goddess! I agree about the use of the green background to contrast the gold color of the goddess. Good dof with sharp details. Great lighting. Well done, tfs.
ourania (12331) 2012-04-06 10:04
a lovely study in lighting and contrasts, an very impressive image even as a thumbnail. The backdrop absorbs the light while the goddess reflects it and becomes so brilliant. You've managed the light superbly and achieved great clarity and marvellous colours. The palette of golden hues is inexhaustible. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,
paololg (31442) 2012-04-08 20:56
Ciao dear Ike,
Yeah, you're right, the contrast with the green BG is very nice and emphasizes the shape of this street artist. Absolutely perfect the sharpness that allows us to appreciate the details of the costume. Great work, congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice week!

Magnificent portrait of this living statue, fully dressed in gold in a pose as a curious induced goddess? the dark background and green leaves, enhances even more the figure. Very good sharpness and light management. Well done.
Have a good weekend.
jmdias (45776) 2012-05-02 7:23
very nice contrast between the golden colors of the personage and the dark background. nice light and sharpness. good image.
clic (10987) 2013-01-07 7:43
Judicious control on exposure that shows fine details in highlights of this newly-painted statue that probably got bored of playing cute, so warmly-dressed under harsh sunlight!
An eye-catcher over dark backdrop!
