    Oh, yeah I remember this. The replica in Piazza Della Signoria. I envy you for being there. Combination of the silhouette and a part of the statue is very clever. Beautiful presentation Mick!!

Wow...tones and texture..this one has it all!! I like the way you got the shadow in relationship to the subject. Luck or composition??? (tell the truth).......Well done Mick!!

Thank you all for your kind words. Lonnie, composition, and a crop. But needed the luck of a bight enough day to make the shadow. We were staying right on the edge of the Piazza Della Signoria, so that helped :)

Congrats on your win, Mick! I love this "interpretation"! (And my mom is visiting Florence as I type this, so I'll have to share it with her...)

I just got back from 2 weeks in the mountains with no internet so this was a wonderful surprise! Thanks to the judge(s) for choosing this image, and thanks to all of you who stopped by and made comments. Very much appreciated. And congrats to all the winners :)
