I can leave comments today, hurray. Your second photo is terrific!

The first is an awesome portrait, VP. Makes me wish it was a real person and not just a bust.

I like the pose of Mr Fattori, but I think I like the lamp even more. :)

I really like the second image with the juxtaposition of the statue and the lamp. Cool point of view VP.

Congratulations for these great pics!
Very artistic compositions.

Francisca said...

That's a strong profile of the man. And an evocative sculpt of the face. Even from the backside, you can feel the personality.

JM said...

Both compositions are fantastic, but my favourite is the top one. Love it! Well done.
