SKYWATCH--The Victor, explained

I've shown you this statue in Kalemegdan Park several times, but I liked the contrast with the transparent explanation sign shown here. The statue is one of the most famous works of the well-known (now deceased) Croatian sculptor, Ivan Mestrovic. You can read a bit more about The Victor here.

See more skies on SKYWATCH FRIDAY.

Ivan Mestrovic did a famous sculpture of the first king of Romania (Carol I). Unfortunately, that sculpture was destroyed (it was melted to make a sculpture of Lenin) during communist regime..

Nice. I always enjoy interesting juxtaposition of elements!

In a similar vein to what Chuck wrote, the juxtaposition of elements with the weight of the image being to the right side makes for a fine composition.
