    I liked the idea of the three sets of legs following each other that I completely missed the problems with the left leg. I still like the composition :-)

    I suppose the rest of the statues were not very interesting, so you settled for the lower limbs. Nice black and white treatment. You left some distracting cloning artifacts between the legs of the left statue.

    Where are they going, and why? The shadows give a sense of direction but the complete figures might have told a more complete story. The lead person should get their right foot big toe seen to.. in my favourites.

    What a great find. The monochromatic treatment really brings out the texture. Your composition and choice of angle are great.

    I like the angle you've chosen, the range of tones and textures, the lines and shadows. Good choice of B&W

Sadly, I'm distracted by what looks like some heavy pp work on the left - visible cloning on the foot, edge of grass and top.

Do you have a photo of the whole sculpture you can show us in outtake?

    I think this defines how well the number three can lead to a perfect composition.

    Interesting composition. I assume there were other distracting objects that made you choose this crop?

    Interesting image with mystery that encourages imagining a story. Works well in monotone. I'd play around with the shooting angle to work on the spacing and balance. For example, I think the left foot of the middle legs shouldn't touch the leg in the foreground.

    Interesting partial view - room for a little mystery. I like how the shadows and the concrete joins all form lines which lead to parts of the composition. Indeed the eye is also going in circles. Well up in tt.
