Re: A Paul Dibble Scultpure
In reply to OlyChamp, Jul 3, 2013

This one is a bit cluttered and the statue sort of vanishes in the background. This is one image that really would have benefitted from shorter DOF, something that should be doable with a DSLR and a longish lens. Of course I have never been to that place so that is just guesswork on my part but it is hard to do the statue real justice without separating it a bit from the background. If it is busy with people during regular hours, maybe shoot at night when most people are not out and about.

Paul Dibble is a world renowned sculpturist who until recently lived in our city. He has a number of large sized sculptures dotted around the city. This image Lady and Tuatara is outside our Regent Theatre. The B&W treatment works better than the colour. Busy agree but hard to shoot without some background.
