Well, it’s Photo Friday again, and this week’s theme is Perspective. I was hoping that I’d be able to use one of the three shots I have ready for putting up, but none of them are really relevant, so I’ll have to take something over the next few days. In the meanwhile, a big thanks to everyone who voted for my entry for the Status challenge – it’s great to get recognised in this way.

As for this shot: I took it a couple of days ago at our local B&Q. There was a whole shelf full of these sculptures (the originals are about a foot tall) and I thought they made for an interesting shot. The only real change made to the image was a Curves adjustment to block out the background and generally increase the image’s contrast – other than that it’s a relatively straight shot.

there is something almost haunting about this piece, it's beautiful.

Fantastic! Definately noteworthy and I love the contrasting dark to light. Art is such a wonderful thing!

nice contrast and structures.. this looks like a huge sculpture, strange that it's so small in comparison to how it looks.
