Boa foto, adoro a composição principalmente o contraste do negro com as cores do céu, bem visto!

Had I a statue been o' stane,
His daring look had daunted me;
And on his bonnet grav'd was plain,
The sacred posy-"Libertie!"
You've caught the outline of the statue (silhou..silou...damn, outline) very crisply against the bright evening sky - and the sky itself has lovely colour and texture. The trees also add to the feel of the image - nice one!

good to see new postings from you my friend

the silhoutte of the statue and trees also works well in this photo.

parfaites silphouettes dans un ciel superbe et agréablement coloré. Un cadrage parfait.

The foreground dark statue with background amazing clouds are looking beautiful. The smoke trail is giving some extra attention to the statue. The trees' shades are looking great.
Thanks for sharing this good composition.

Nice to see your post again.
What a nice place to relax in the late evening and enjoying the sunset and with luck, you got yourself a cool image of the garden during sunset and the jet's trail that make the shot more interesting.
Since the silhoutte is considerable black, try out the PS to enhance the yellow color and reduce the brightness to give a more dramatic evening mode.
Well done and welcome back.

A crisp clear shot with very powerful silhouettes. I love the way the statue is standing defiantly against the dramatic and textured sky. The trees nicely balance the statue and add to the ambience. A very fine shot, Ricardo.

Esta foto tem uma luminosidade super especial o tom dourado da nuvem sobre a cabeca do poeta realcando ainda mais a sua silhueta e incrivel. A linha branca vertical cria uma simetria como que apontando para o sujeito principal da foto. As cores e os contrastes tb estao perfeitos e a composicao colocando o sujeito no canto esquerdo super bem escolhida. Bravo!

Nicely captured with an impressive sky, love the delicate colors of the clouds and the superb silhouette from the statue and trees. We can see that Denver airport is a very busy one. Very good composition. Well done Ricardo.

With this sky and all the action no wonder its a place for a poet. You have selected the most fitting position and backdrop for this poet. i like the silhouette, they are very effective incoporated into the composition. Brilliant shot!! Regards.

Fantastic colours in the sky. I love the way they form a backdrop to the silhouetted statue and trees. Do you know what the connection is between Robbie Burns and Denver?

Nice evening shot with great light and atmosphere.I like very much the sky.
beijokense (498) 2006-02-23 10:48
Muito boa a combinação de exposição, resultando em silhuetas na penumbra e um céu magnificamente colorido.
O traço diagonal deixado por 1 avião como que cria uma fronteira entre as árvores e a estátua... a diagonal superior fica dominada por uma núvem mais escura beneficiando ainda o contraste com a estátua.
Esta foi bem sacada mesmo.

Hi Ricardo, Nice capture of the colors of the sky framed by the foreground silhouette views. An excellent sharpness and clarity to the silhouette view of the statue. The white trajectory created by the jet added some special effect to the image. Well done.

Welcome back to TE my friend,How are you?
Excellent photo with excellent pov,dof,silhouette,lighting and colors.
Sky looks awesome.Well Done.Obrigado:)
Janice (4403) 2006-02-23 22:13
Hi Ricardo, you have captured the skyline and colours really well. And the silhouettes of the trees and the statue are excellent. I like the white streaks of cloud from planes flying over. Very well composed, thank you,
capthaddock (28790) 2006-02-24 8:56
Hi Ricardo - the sky is absolutely stunning, and works so well with the silhouettes, a rare Denver photo that has neither the rockies nor the airport as the subject.
Potch (474) 2006-02-24 13:48
Bom ver uma nova foto sua. Linda foto com POV e composicao excelentes. Parabens.
Tenha um bom fim de semana.
Stepan (27210) 2006-02-24 16:21
Ths sky is really beautiful. The perfect moment, I guess.
I like the diagonal even if I had preferred it drove us to the skyline better than this dark statue.
nofer (3215) 2006-02-24 22:11
Já comentei isso.... você é bom neste tipo de foto!!! Gostei muito da composição. Cores, nitidez.
coco (30439) 2006-02-25 15:16
The siluette looks gorgeus over the sky and its nice colours.
Well seen and well captured.
MartaW (703) 2006-02-27 22:38
On the thumbnail looks like a fountain. Beautiful photo, good moment.
Gerrit (49772) 2006-03-01 3:09
An inspiring landscape and sky for this poet, standing there for ever.
Well balanced composition with great light.
Thanks and regards, Gerrit
jbweasle (9373) 2006-03-05 14:53
Wonderful sky, Ricardo. The silhouettes of the statue and the trees are beautifully detailed and stand out well.
devimeuxbe (58557) 2006-03-05 17:07
Beautifull picture with this shadow and this great sky. It's a very good composition.
rosaline (0) 2006-03-06 11:12
Excellent composition here and the silhouette delivers great impact. The colour of the sky is good too, and helps to deliver the picture. The locaton of the statue in the frame works well spacially, and the park trees recede into the distance to give good perspective. Well done.
zeca (19762) 2006-03-08 14:32
Boa foto, Ricardo! Interessante que o jato divide o céu em formas e cores, e partindo dos pés do poeta. Bem sacada! Nuvens muito bonitas colorindo o céu e silhueta bem definida. Valeu!
jmdaoudal (82) 2006-03-13 1:36
This is a very good situation offered with the dark statue in the sky and over the trees in "ombres chinoises". A nice view for this great poet.
I like it
TeresaT (10806) 2006-03-14 13:54
Very beautiful silhouette of this statue.
The clouds in the sky are amazing.
Great colours and contrast.
Congratulations on this one.
lu_muratori (618) 2006-03-15 1:45
Oi Ricardo, essa foto esta muito linda, com a silhoueta e o ceu com a luz de fim de tarde. aquele risco no ceu ( deve ser um aviao) tb ficou demais, parabens!
peter1892 (1681) 2006-03-20 17:39
Hi Ricardo - great image, the composition is very good, giving us the silhouette of the statue, the trees on the other side & the jet contrails making an interesting pattern in the sky. Excellent work!
riclopes (35577) 2006-04-11 3:39
Esta captura está fabulosa!
A composição perfeita de silhuetas, contra as bonitas cores do céu, perto do pôr-do-sol e aquele rasto branco a sair da estátua, acrescentando algo enigmático - Uma imagem resultante de forte impacto visual. A nuvens lá no alto, são como uma pintura...Parabéns por esta fotografia!
Obrigado por partilhares,
pierrefonds (58311) 2006-04-12 5:51
A good POV of the statue of Robert Burns and a nice colors of the sky, the photo has a good composition.
Angshu (56190) 2006-04-18 3:51
An astonishing sky with wonderful silhouettes. The jet trails are also dramatic. Beautiful compo with the statue on the right..wondering what's the relationship between Denver and Robert Burns?
andrewgg (0) 2006-04-27 18:53
I really like the silhouettes of the statue and the trees against that sky, Ricardo.
I wonder what connection there is with this place and Robert Burns?
PS. I know my comments on the photo don't contain anything new, but this was my reaction before looking at what others had written.)

Ricardo Abdelnoor ,
Congratulation for wonderful post.
Nice vivid colors of sky.
Very well taken...
banyanman (7789) 2006-11-16 10:35
Lovely light you have captured here, Ricardo - this sort of image always goes down well on TE. The statue is positioned well in your composition which feel nicely balanced. I like the inclusion of the diagonal jet trail 'disappearing' into the silhouette of the statue as well. There is a slight halo around the statue - maybe that's due to over-sharpening. Cheers . . . David
tpstrek (2168) 2008-05-06 16:06
Nice evening-photo, with an impressive sky. Like the colours and the "strong" silhouette of the statue. Excellent sharpness and clarity.
avallaunius (6) 2008-05-06 16:09
except for the amazing skyscape that white line in the sky which reaches the statue is very interesting and eye catching
testmaniac (13508) 2008-05-15 21:47
Hello Ricardo,very good photo and great composition and colors. Excellent job!
TFS and regards!
