How interesting. There is a new sculpture in Vancouver, BC that is the same as this one. I like it. Good luck in the contest.

Although it has no ears, eyes, nose, and so on, I know it's a lady, lol.
Very good entry for the 'abstract' contest, Hilda.
Good Luck!

That is a great entry for the contest, and a fine looking sculpture. I hope it isn't under water in Des Moines.

This looks like an alien out of the old star trek series. And it makes a great entry into the contest.

Fabulous capture, Hilda! I like the narrow crop and composition very much! I also love how you captured the sculpture with just sky in the background, and no distractions! Beautifully done, and best of luck in the contest! :) Saved + faved.

Definitely right for the contest. I was genuinely surprised when you said this was a photo, I fully expected a computer render... must be a pretty new sculpture as it is so clean and sharp. The background is completely free of distractions and works perfectly.
