"Artistic expression is a manifestation of the unity of design and mateial. This once again underlines the necessity fo incorporating works of sculpture (or painting) creatively into the interior setting from the outset. In the great epochs of cultural history this was done by architects as a matter of course and, no doubt, without conscious reflection."

I am a total contrasting colours nerd, so, to start off: congratulations on blue and yellow used well together! There are so many diffrent textures (or patterns so to say) in this piece, all coinciding quite well together. The clean lines of the marble, and of the pool- side in the foreground vs. then the shocking tangle of tress in the background adds much visual appeal.

The trouble is that the shadow areas of this piece are simply BLACK areas. I am aware that this happens often in photography, and accpet it as a default of sorts. I also think that it would have been to the great benefit of this piece of art if a clearer reflection of the statue upon the water could have been captured.

This is great work, though.

Balanced picture with the right choice of title. Nice structure, light, exposition. Maybe lacking some strenght on colours. Theweak spot is the higher part on the right: neither here, nor there...just there, in other words with little meaning. I saw this picture just an hour ago and was about to comment, destiny? :D
Good work.
