War memorial statue

Passed by the Wellington war memorial with good light this morning and found this statue. It had good light on it and a deep contrast which I like. The war memorial is in the background I had I used this angle to make sure the darker stone was behind the statue highlights rather than the lighter stone below it (also took some shots at that level, they weren’t nearly as good)

Originally shot this is colour, though later converted to b&w and cropped because there was some distracting stuff on the left, bother colour-wise and shape-wise. One day I’ll be able to get this stuff right first time 🙂
