This is a statue in an old plantation garden. Parts of this garden have been left to ‘age’ and the ponds have taken the look of swamps (Alligators included).
Most of the time we ignore these statues. The light and time of day needs to be very good to get any kind of a worthwhile shot.
Each of these images were finished with a different method. Giving the same scene a unique look, I hope.
These were taken with a long lens which allowed me to get as close, or far, as I wanted. Besides, there was water between us.
