Gigantic statue thingy. I took a bunch of shots while the sun was going down. Ironically, I was packing up my bag, and decided to hit the shutter button one last time. It was on the tripod, but I was not looking. I ended up using that shot.

I cloned out a couple distracting tree branches, and adjusted the contrast a bit. The sky color and black on the image is pretty much how the shot was taken. Also, I had a tough time resizing this pic because there was this white glow around the edges. I had to very carefully touch up the borders of some fine detail. I still think it needs work, but I'm out of time.

crop/framing is a little constricting.

The figure on the left leads the eye into the image well and the eye naturally follows up to the third figure...I would have perhaps cropped the last figure out? But you beat me hands down, so what do I know?:))
