Contrast....

Beautiful contrast with the blue sky.....statues are not easy subjects.....but the 3rd one is a striking photo with all the right combinations of light.
I prefer colour and tend to avoid grey figures but this one placed amongst a selection of colour photos would really be quite striking...

Love some fo the statues you find in a cemetary. Got a few myself. Have you tried to desaturate any of them?

Really great set of images and I have seen them in flickrs.

If we had a competition on statues, these ones would have been the best ones for the theme for sure !

#1 and #3 are my favs, though I think a little bit less blank space above the head in #1 would make it much stronger. I love taking pics in cemeteries - my wife thinks it's spooky.
