Here's a little abstract from Wiki about Angel of the North:
"The Angel of the North is a contemporary sculpture designed by Antony Gormley, which is located in Gateshead, England.
As the name suggests, it is a steel sculpture of an angel, standing 66 feet (20 m) tall, with wings measuring 178 feet (54 m) across. The wings themselves are not planar, but are angled 3.5 degrees forward, which Gormley has said aims to create "a sense of embrace". It stands on a hill, on the southern edge of Low Fell overlooking the A1 road and the A167 road into Tyneside and the East Coast Main Line rail route, and just south of the site of Team Colliery."
I consider myself an amateur (hence my first post) who's gotten myself a G9 last year, trying to learn more about "cameraphy".
Hope is to move into DSLR, if $$$ permits.. =)
1. In what area is critique to be sought?
Composition, lighting and feel.
2. What I hope to achieve with this piece of work?
Can you feel "sheltered and loved" looking at this? (BTW the "small" couple is not staged.. they just happened to be there!)
I was hoping to show the massiveness of the statue as well.
3. Under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
This was taken ard March last year in UK (Spring time?), Sunny, windy, clear blue sky. I know nuts about PS, so simply used MS Office Pic Manager to crop off some top and bottom.
4. What the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture?
I like this picture - the dark silhouette against the sweeping blue sky.. But I think it's kinda too dark in some areas (is this what's termed under-exposed?!)
