    With out the information, this is a good image. Love the detail.

Since you ask, the statue is a study for one of the figures in Rodin's 'Burghers of Calais'. The man is hunched over in despair, believing he is on the way to his doom. I chose to uplift him, suggesting his relief at finding he won't be executed after all. For the full story, check out 'Burghers of Calais' on Wikipedia.

And yes, the tilted background is the deviation from conventional photographic wisdom. (I didn't try to explain all this, as comments in the forum seemed to discourage doing so.)

    A nice 'portrait' with good tonal contrast. I'm not sure that choosing your own angle of presentation is breaking a rule.

    Not knowing who the statue is of, leaves this photo lacking interest for me. The photo is taken well though. Is the slanted background the broken rule?
