The Guarded Horseman

This photo was taken at the Royal Palace in Budapest in Hungary. This is one of my all time favourites :-)

Unfortunately I never found out who the statues where of :'-( If anyone knows, I'd love to hear from you.
I always imagine that the eight statues are watching over the rider.

Very nice colors and composition. If I were you I would rotate this to get it horizontal , its at a bit of a tilt.

I know what you mean... though I generally don’t edit my photos once they are taken... several people have mentioned cropping and rotating problems... I think community outrage might just sway me to edit this one... in time :-)

Thank you for your comment.

really eye catching shot :) the off center and tilt of the shot take a lot away from this because the symmetry and straight lines are what this shot really has going for it. i think a little rotate and crop would make this much more powerful.

Yeah, I should have taken more care when I took this photo. I didn’t have a tripod for this shot. The camera was resting on the side of a fountain.
As a general rule, I don't crop or rotate my photos (though I have made exceptions). I try to get the exact result I want when I take the photo. I didn’t quite succeed with this shot, which I admit. I've still got a lot to learn.

Thank you very much for your honest feedback. I hope to align my shots better in future :-)

The lighting is amazing, I can only imagine how much more incredible it would have been to behold it in all its glory for real.

His name is Savoyai Jenő (1663-1736), prince and captain of french growth who took an active part of the liberation of Castle of Buda and captained the army againts the turkish. He had a baroque residence in Ráckeve.

Hope it's understandable =p

Fantastic stuff. Thank you very much for your info :-) It is greatly appreciated. :-) :-)

Savoyai Jenö - DA doesn't like accents =p
aussiepoida's avatar
You are correct. I suppose I should have touched it up a little before I uploaded it. On the other hand, I quite like keeping the pictures the way they were shot :-)

Thank you for your comment. :-)

cropping seems a little cut off on the bottom and sides, but otherwise very cool, i like the colors.
