This is just a very quick comment in response to your request.

First, without the title and your explanation, I would not have understood the relationship between the man and the statue. It's not self evident. More needs to be seen or something.

Second, the processing seems a bit harsh to me. Somewhere between the original and the final version would be more to my liking. It looks too contrasty, too over processed.

good luck and keep shooting!

{edit} P.S. I looked at the bigger version. You have good detail in the highlights and shadows, but it's still far to contrasty for me.

Thanks for the feedback. I went back to it, and tried something in between, but it is definitely less over-the-top.

A more balanced PP (I hope)

FWIW, below is the original in color, cropped.

this black and white redo is going in the right direction the mad and statue are looking good but the background needs a bit of darkening to help pop  out your subject
