I love this. How did you manage to shoot without a thousand people wandering about? Really a gorgeous place and your capture here really shows it off well. Excellent composition, and nice post processing to make it shine.

Great purposed dynamic range. Someday I hope to learn WHEN to use hdr because it works so well when done right (and looks aweful on 99% of my subjects). Anyway, very nicely done.

Statue 1: "One day my son, all that you see will be yours"

Statue 2: "Oh, thanks dad, considering we're rock, you've survived half a millenia, and being ruler of something I can never move around in fills me with such an insane glee."

Statue 1: "Don't be a smart-ass boy, I won't last forever, I am only granite"

Statue 2: "I knew you'd lost your Marble."
