Unconditional surrender
ISO: 50 
Posted By: Aboudd, 01-20-2015, 05:32 AM

There are two of Seward Johnson's "Unconditional Surrender" statues in the U.S., one in San Diego and this one in Sarasota. The statue is based on a photo by Victor Jorgensen, not on the now famous photo by Alfred Eisenstadt, This is one of those spots that draws tourists like ants to a fallen ice cream cone, so if you want to study the statue itself, either cropping or a night time exposure is necessary.

I found the night illumination to be too contrasty and preferred edge lighting of the late afternoon sun.

I like it, I guess a slow shutter speed it ok, they stand pretty still.
