Fountains, sculpture & statues
Thought we could use another thread because Fountains don't really fit the Waterfall thread and many sculptures and some statues are not monuments or don't commemorate or monumentalise particular people or events (although many statues, particularly of famous people, could be said to be monuments to their memory...). In any case I hope others will support this new thread and add their photos of Fountains, Sculptures and Statues! :)
I'll post some photos once the thread is created. :D
Archibald Fountain, second take!
Thanks for supporting this thread with your posts! Some nice shots there: SpecialK, ChevyMan23, & mr.dobsi! :)
I'm looking forward to when people will post some fountain shots from Europe, like some classic fountains in Paris, Rome, London, or exotic sculpture etc.
Here is my second take on the Archibald Fountain, Hyde Park, Sydney, taken hand-held (although supported by the information plaque plinth of the fountain) at night.
Exif: Shutter-priority auto shooting mode, shutter speed 4sec's (the slowest my camera, a Fuji S5700/S700, can go), ISO400, Exposure correction: +2EV, Spot metering, Sharpness: Hard, everything else I left on auto.
