This is a modern art statue in Luxembourg park Paris. It was a full bronze head, however I done know who the artist is sorry.
I will admit I don't know anything about the park, I will look it up & add something on when I have time.

I like your perspective capturing this interesting sculpture also giving a nice view of the architecture and the gardens of the park. The lighting and colors are superb. What a gorgeous sky too. Well done!

About the Luxembourg Garden I know that it is big, has a central lake and is very beautiful, in particular in summer when the weather is hot. I have been several times and even played a chess match with an aged man. And, I lost the match! The statue is new for me as it is now more than 10 years last time I was in Paris. The picture is nice and the dramatic sky is beautiful. Well done.

very funny composition and title. A lot of beautiful details here. The sky makes a good background for your composition. Excellent light. TFS

Interesting point of view which makes a good juxtaposition between statue and palace. From this angle the head looks much larger than the building, an intriguing thought ;-) Good light and colours.

astonishing for the eye with the large profile before the good details of this more depth view on the right half. Have you tried one with a lower aperture, one sharp at the nose another one sharp in the distance? Great sky with good textures.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Great photo. The park merely wonderful, to provide a successful funny meaning to the picture with the original composition. The details beautiful, I praise the composition yet a small one, dared very much likes. The photo proves that the success of the picture depends on the original composition apart from the suitable light relations wonderfully. Brilliant idea, with perfect realisation. Have a nice day
rodgerg (55767) 2008-10-23 6:48
The framing is very original, bery succesfull, very nice. An excellent idea!

Nice compo !
I like how you cut the head sculpture, and how you placed the other elements into the frame.
Have a nice day,
jemaflor (97197) 2008-10-23 11:20
Good idea with this portrait in fg, impressive result with a frame well seen, good contrast between the color of this face and all the view.
Gerrit (51935) 2008-10-23 15:15
good and funny composition and observation,
Good colors and quality.
stego (24132) 2008-10-23 16:17
Nice POV, it enhances the contrast of the classicism of the garden and the palace of the BG and the big modern statue of the FG. I like the way you "layered" the compo (statue, flowered tree, palace, a bit of the tree and cloudy sky). It produces a pleasant visual effect and compensates the compressing effect of long focal length.
I have been on that park a couple of times, if I am not mistaken, the last one was 2 and half years ago and I don't remember seeing that statue. Perhaps it is newer or I have not noticed it.
pablominto (53746) 2008-10-23 22:59
An interesting combination of elements!
Good sharpness in depth, f/11 seems to cover well and the feeling of depth is good too...
A balanced composition with fine details, lovely clouds are hovering above!
bakes888 (18499) 2008-10-24 1:18
Hi Wilson. Great photo. Well chosen POV and composition along with excellent DOF make for an eye catching image. Nice work and thanks for sharing.
Have a good weekend, Paul.
jlbrthnn (76037) 2008-10-24 1:35

i like this image, a very good humorous moment well captured!
feather (51130) 2008-10-24 6:49
Very creative and successful framing of the scene with only part of the sculpture. There is a good balance between that and the pretty trees. Light and colours are good. Well done
mauro61 (52855) 2008-10-24 7:38
una composizione ottima dove si vede il gusto e il piacere di fare una foto.
Elementi bene in mostra ,colori vivi e luci perfette, bravissimo
JCG (35129) 2008-10-24 11:36
A really artistic framing here, I like much your glance. This face seems to smell this bouquet of flowers represented by this shrub. This splendid sky creates an appreciable relief. Good gestion of the lights. Beautiful work, Wilson cheer.
With all my friendships and a very good WE,
kermit350 (9016) 2008-10-24 11:41
Hello Wilson, it is a very impressionist sight, the framework is well produced with this bronze head which propels us directly in the middle of the image, a pleasant image with much of flower and natural colours, sincerely ..............Bonjour Wilson, c’est une vue très impressionniste, le cadre est bien réalisé avec cette tête en bronze qui nous propulse directement au cœur de l’image, une image agréable avec beaucoup de fleur et de teintes naturelles, bien amicalement
danyy (0) 2008-10-24 23:31
un cadrage personnel et interessant qui dégage beaucoup de points d'intéret. J'aime beaucoup le rendu du ciel et le contraste dans les couleurs.
Have a great week-end.
gunbud (34066) 2008-10-25 6:38
Creative POV linning up the giant bronze with the late summer blossoming tree.
The dramatic sky works well here making a unique background for this lovely urban image.
naznaz567 (344) 2008-10-25 7:33
Humorous and creative, POV is what has made this so distinctive. Wonderful shot. The building in the back looks like a dollhouse by playmobil!
axiotea (21651) 2008-10-25 8:06
An original and creative image which has an excellent light, allowing to see nicely the details...The sculpture gave depth and I like its shiny texture! The title is also well chosen!
Gustaw (21670) 2008-10-25 13:51
Hi, my friend!
And next very interesting photo in your colection. I like your oryginal composition. Good colours and light. Well done.

super net,great sky,very original sculpture at the same height with a blossemed tree. tfs
jmcl (14535) 2008-10-25 17:20
Striking use of perspective .. you have really amplified the surreal feel of it. very nice.
take care, John
azaf1 (15929) 2008-10-26 1:16
The park is really nice, afterall since we can see it the details may be redundant. I like the statue on the left which reminds me o fthe stone ones from The Easter Islands and the sharp details with the nice colors
Have a nice weekend
Burberry1 (6041) 2008-10-26 1:57
Perfectly framed and composed!
I like how U positioned the sculpture and I like the light very much.
patdeph (35748) 2008-10-26 2:55
I like the POV with the cropped statue in front of the flowered tree,and I like the humourous of the title!The sky is superb,the natural colours very pleasant!Very well done!
macondo (19516) 2008-10-26 3:12
A typically interesting composition, Wilson.
I remember this sculpture in the Luxembourg Garden, but confess never to have seen the potential for this composition! Good rich colours and a great sky in this one. I think the picture quality has suffered a little by being over-compressed - it's only 137k, when it could be 300k. Otherwise, your exposure and PP work has produced an interesting picture with good depth.
claudeD (38684) 2008-10-26 5:20
excellent summer shot of the "JArdin du Luxembourg" at Paris.I like the summer atmosphere of this image.Very well done.
With regards from Luxembourg

Hi Wilson, great POV for a beautiful composition, superb sky, very well done, ciao Silvio
Nicou (142012) 2008-10-26 9:18
Le cadrage est mangigiqeu avec ce portrait tout a gauche, cette belle vue sur le bâtiment du font, excellent travail et recherche. superbe.
Bravo et belle soirée
fulvio52 (8314) 2008-10-26 10:24
there's something in this shot... I can't quite pin it down, but it's got to do with lighting & architecture, which lean towards a painting-like effect... it makes me think of Karel Willink and Paul Delvaux. Dreamy and unsettling at the same time, absolutely fascinating!
And thanks for visiting my "Wahweap Marina at Sunset", I really appreciate.
Have a nice evening, I'll be seeing you.
xavshot (69835) 2008-10-26 10:39
joli cadrage... j'aime beaucoup le résultat de cette compo et les couleurs.
PaulVDV (29017) 2008-10-26 13:25
This is really the best title for this beautiful picture. I like your POV and the wonderful composition. You've managed the light very well.
Best regards, Paul
papagolf21 (101852) 2008-10-26 13:47
Bonsoir, cher Wilson,
Eh bien ! je suis heureux de découvrir un endroit que je connais bien, hormis la sculpture géante !
Comme quoi, il semble nécessaire que des amis de TE nous fassent découvrir des nouveautés.
L'image est très bien composée (avec beaucoup d'habileté).
Le ciel est superbe !
tabora (0) 2008-10-26 14:07
Bonne idée que de faire ressentir les odeurs par cette tête,un bien joli endroit,ton ciel est merveilleux.
dumbo (4541) 2008-10-27 1:28
What a great composition! I like that big face and the well saturated colors of this photo.
npecanhuk (75422) 2008-10-27 4:32
Extremely well elaborated composition created such an attractive and beautiful photograph, full of rich details, very nice colors, excellent sharpness and management of light!
I really like that!
TFS - Congratulations!
chinchini (31529) 2008-10-27 7:59
Très bonne approche de ce coin du Jardin du Luxembourg. La composition et le cadrage sont bien réfléchis. Le ciel bien garni ajoute son humeur tumultueuse à l'image.
Bien vu !
Cricri (119427) 2008-10-27 10:45
Intéressante cette composition avec la statue sur le côté et avec son regard qui semble regarder vers le jardin et le bâtiment, superbe réalisation
good evening for you
jusninasirun (17162) 2008-10-29 20:18
Hi Wilson. Clever framing with suitable title. The depth with the statue in the foreground is really good. Sharp details and such a beautiful tree in this frame. Regards. Jusni
Tue (36938) 2008-10-30 6:39
I really love the inclusion of this large bronze head on the left hand side. It's just great! Nice view of the park too in a pleasant sunlight. The clouds in the sky are also very nice. Thanks for sharing!
adores (45329) 2008-10-30 15:49
Great idea here! I really like this composition, really seems he's smelling the flowers. Guess it's the first time I'm seeing a photo of this sculpture. Well chosen format. Good colours, light and sharpness!
leo61 (0) 2008-10-30 22:36
A good shot with many nice elements.Godd placement of the slulpture`s face and a nice view at this colorful background.
riclopes (35577) 2008-10-31 1:27
haha, nice original capture with a funny title. The size of it is impressive and you took good advantage of that. Excellent textures on the bright golden surface.
MLINES (12516) 2008-11-01 1:37
Hi Wilson, I like your sense of humour. The very stylish buildings in the background and the artwork in front shows what a great mix of folk live in modern France. Very good composition. TFS. Murray.
devimeuxbe (58557) 2008-11-05 14:25
i like this composition with the profil of the big head. Strange vision and interesting picture
ocskaymarci (2690) 2008-11-10 12:26
Well seen connection between the statue and the trees composed in a great photo. I also like the colours and the big white clouds in the sky.
jrj (34843) 2008-11-14 2:23
A fun and creative work Wilson. Good idea, well composed, cropped and presented.
baba_flies (8829) 2009-02-26 7:11
Hello Wilson! Impressive statue on the side, somehow I don't remember that is was there when I was there but maybe you know I oversaw it, okay it does not look like you would, pretty obvious, hey :)))) Very nice the sunlight on the head but also the cloudy sky that brings a lot of dynamics to your photo. Yes these jardins are a wonderful treat and each city should have them, they are good to breathe through and sit down for a while treating your feet after hours searching for metro stations and walking through noisy streets. Somehow you bring this out in your picture, also the flowers they add something sweet and innocent to this urban situation. Have a wonderful evening, Barbara.
macjake (67748) 2011-01-03 15:16
i just noticed this one in your gallery now...it made me laugh a little bit :)
to say the composition is great would be an understatement.
well thought thru
jafadabret (56501) 2011-02-07 23:37
J'aime cette photo pour sa composition, ses couleurs et sa lumière. Les Jardins du Luxembourg sont bien connus et appréciés des Parisiens. Voir ce lien
