    Chloe is a very interesting sculpture on the grounds of the Virginia Museum of Fine Art. Depending on your perspective you get a very different look at her!

    I was going for a more surreal vibe here.

    C&C welcome!!

    Wow, this is different, both in the real sculpture and in the way you present it. I am guessing the last is a long exposure night shot. Do have any reason not to remove the scar on her forehead?

    She's even cooler in person because you can walk around her and she slowly takes on a fully 3D shape!

    Nope, both shots were taken around 1pm or so - the glory of IR. The 'scar' you're seeing is a falling leaf. I wasn't sure how apparent those were at this res, but perhaps it should be cloned?

    They look like star trails until you think about it and see a lack of alignment.

    I think you succeeded with the surreal vibe - esp. in the first image. I really like the way the light plays with the sculpture's face.

    Thanks much, Alan! A reduction in Clarity (using Lightroom) tends to add a slight glow effect to bright areas. You lose some of the detail obviously, but in this application I'm okay with it!
