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!! #937015

I love your composition here! A wonderful B&W shot. #6036181

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!! #6039317

Mick Burkey 6/9/2008 3:40:01 PM

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 :) #6039673
