Bronze glow


I am posting about snow, again. I can't help it. I took this photo after midnight on new year's eve. This is Piazza San Niccolò, which is near home. I like this sculpture and the contrast with the church of San Niccolò, especially in this light in which the bronze has such a special glow.
The man with the umbrella seemed captured too...

You can pretty much just quit for the year because this has to be your finest photo of the year and it's only Jan.3rd! Stunningly beautiful. Amazing.

I love the sepia color in the photo. The egg-shape sculpture looked like an alien ship opening up and the man is waiting to greet whatever is coming out of it.

Awesome photo!!

I agree with Ming. The sepia colour gives a fantastic effect to the snow and the entire scene. Well done. All the best. A.

Thanks everybody! I didn't expect such enthusiastic comments on this one...
I just wanted to point out that I didn't add the sepia color: there are simply four yellowish street lamps on the corners of this square. That's where the light on the sculputure comes from!
