Made a special first-time trip to this place. The sky looked promising and I took this shot as the sun sank below the horizon behind the sculpture. I used a remote speedlight for definition.
The sculpture is called the 'Singing Ringing Tree'
PP. mainly a combination of Shadows/Highlights, Topaz Adjust and curves adjustment layers.
More info on the Singing Ringing Tree here.

This is a wonderful, beautifully processed shot of this fascinating sculpture. Thanks for including the link, which was very interesting and informative (but not as well photographed.)

That is a very interesting sculpture. It kind of looks like a satellite dish peering into the heavens. Very unique! Good capture and good light on the subject.

Very strange and out of the world image. The sounds must be extraordinary. And as a special bonus, it's as if the pipes blew up some clouds with total abandon.
Boy, it looks like a 3D model. Amazing. Give us some more details please.
