I would have the statue on the left side looking into the frame. That would make better use of the negative space. As it is now there is no real interest in what is behind him.

great silhouette, i wish the branches were cropped out, but then again the red part of the sky wouldnt be visible

I liked this the minute I saw it. Good ol' George with his cherry tree axe. The silhouette is nicely placed. Maybe even more space to the left and a tighter crop to the right would have worked for me. Nice sunset colors. 7
