Series on my trip to BUENOS AIRES - ARGENTINA'S Capital City - SOUTH AMERICA - From June 3rd to 6th 2010 - # 039 !
BUENOS AIRES has many, many squares, parks and other green areas! Here's another one, called PLAZA MITRE, where this monument, to BARTOLOMÉ MITRE, is located, facing the AVENIDA DEL LIBERTADOR, in the RECOLETA DISTRICT.
With this picture, I go on with my series here at TE, showing some landmarks of BUENOS AIRES, the ARGENTINA'S CAPITAL CITY and the SECOND largest city in SOUTH AMERICA, considered a mix of several european cities (Madrid, London and Paris)!
Although the city has faced many economical crisis in the last decades with obvious decay of life quality in many aspects - today one can find homeless people, beggars, dirt, a certain violence in the streets and slums in its outskirts - the good spirit of the city still remains: Fun at night, with lots of people going out around midnight and going back home when sunlight already exists! Wonderful buildings and monuments are still all over the place!!!

Interesting perspective of the building and good frame quality of the statue
The arcitecture style of the house is from the begening os the XXth century but the roof is modern
Good sharp picture and no green dominant colour

Le point de vue en contre plongée donne de l'ampleur à ce superbe monument. Bon cadrage de verdure. Bien fait.

Bien cadrée cette statue, jolie lumière et rendu des teintes, la présence humaine donne une échelle à la photo et la dimension de la statue.

Un très beau cadrage vertical. La contre plongée donne une belle ampleur au monument et utilise bien le ciel bleu comme arrière plan. Le jeune homme semble bien petit à l'ombre du monument.

I like very much the point of view with the impressive statue nicely framed by the adjacent building. Light, colours and sharpness are all very good.

what an impressive statue/monument, it is huge, as the trespassing youngster conveys so perfectly. A superbly chosen POV and lots of immaculate and beautiful detail too! Glorious!
Have a good weekend - B.

well taken picture from the POV which seems to slightly lower and allowed to frame the view very nicely. The statute towers over the boy siting at its bottom and whose presence gives us the sense of the scale. Pretty colors and perfect sharpness.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day

This is a very good photo where you have managed to combine art, architecture and human presence in a nice way. With all respect to the magnificent sculptures it's really the young man sitting at the bottom that moves this composition to a higher level. He complements the collection of statues perfectly.

bello scatto, la statua è ben fotografata, curiosa la presenza di quella persona.
Ottima luce e un bel cielo completano un ottimo lavoro.

I really like your viewpoint which gives a diagonal composition across the frame and, also, gives a very strong status to the statue, elevated into the sky.
The figure, although appearing somewhat disrespectful, does supply a necessary sense of scale.
Excellent light management and sharp details.
Have a great w/e,

This reminds me of a similar statue of a man on horseback in Barcelona, Spain, near the main cathedral. The boy atop the pedestal adds scale and animates the scene. Good sharpness and a marvellous blue sky. Nice graphic contrasts between the white angels and black horse. Tfs!

beautiful presentation of this majestic monument. I like the great weather which helped you to create pleasant colors. I don't remember seeing this monument and it seems like something what I would like to see. I guess one need more time to explore this interesting city,
Thanks for sharing it,

gostei da imagem com ótimos detalhes do monumento. gostei inclusive da inclusão do personagem na base, olhando a câmera. penso que vc podia ter ido um metros mais para a esquerda e liberado a cabeça do mitre por inteiro, mas isso é um detalhe menor.

No dejo de asombrarme como tu y Jorge saben el español
Tengo una foto de este monumento tomada desde abajo, tradicional lugar de encuentro de adolescentes para para bajar con rollers
Me gusta este encuadre vertical de las diferentes estatuas, todo destacandose en el cielo azul
Muy buena nota
