I know this statue from seeing it before many times, but never from this really creative and inventive viewpoint, I love it! the gold tones of the statue shine through beautifully and for once, the focus is on the statue, not the ice rink> Wonderful shot, thanks for sharing.
All the best

The color of Gold is providing the Midas touch to this motivational picture. Hope this POV helps others in pursuing their goals.

There is something strange about this image I can't quite figure out whether it's post processing or something else but whatever it is I really like it! The bright yellow contrasts nicely with the bleakness of the surroundings and there is something painterly about it.

Så du stod på den sidan för att ta en bild på Prometheus! Själv stod jag trärsöver rinken, på balustraden på andra sidan. Du har låtit en del av den berömda statyn ta upp en stor del av bilden, med det röda räcket som en fin inramning.

I like very much the composition and treatment of this image. You've achieved great depth and intriguing dynamism that creates interaction between the statue and background. The golden tones on the statue provide srunning contrast, the moody tones in the rest of the frame are consistent and harmonious keeping the composition simple and the story in it effective. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,
