Panasonic DMC-GX7       4th place, 108 points
1/3s, f8, ISO 125, 14mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: RAW file converted with Adobe RAW;transform - skew; crop; decreased shadows; decreased highlights; increased contrast; curves; filter - unsharp mask       Extra Info: Artist Joseph J. O'Connel created this bronze sculpture said to epitomize the family of man in 1996. The curved arms and sweeping lines of the parents clothing create an environment that protects the child. IMHO this work of art conveys a palpable sense of “love”.

    Hi Robert

I failed to vote for this one because it was a sculpture and did not transmit Love to me. Obviously, I must have missed something here because you did so well in the voting. So, congrats my friend!

    I asked my wife what she thought this scene looked like and I had to laugh when she said exactly the same as I was thinking....to us it looks like two aliens (human form but bat like wings, elongated head and huge feet) are trying to abduct a Human child but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt about the 'love/protection' theme ;-) .

    Beautifully composed and shot, with striking color. The love idea is there, though maybe not as strong as some other entries.

    Well photographed. I agree that the sculpture conveys the message of love. I also like your composition with nice colors and lines behind the subject.
