I like it. I'm not so crazy about induced grain, but I do like the subject matter.

That is a great image, it even works despite being in the centre. I think the high grain look also works, because the Greeks or Romans are surely old, and it give the image an ovewrall sparse look. the subjects stand as if facing an alien, unknown, and somewhat menacing, modern world, which does not look that good for us modern humans. Excellent contrast!

It is an unusual image Rense but you made it work with PP.

Thanks Jim! The grain is a result of darkening the blue parts and similtaneously lighting the yellow and orange parts.

JMR, thank you. Some things I find disturbing, like the white pole in the right, but another crop ruins the atmosphere of the photo.

Excellent image, it reminds me of the work of German movie director Wim Wenders,'Wings of Desire' in particular.

The only thing I don't like is the white pipe on the right but it can be forgiven because the picture is so good. The statues in the middle of all those overhead cables is a very powerful image, although I can't say why.

I like this Rense - I agree a little less grain would work for me but great statue and nice capture.

Tom, thank you for your compliment. Concerning the caption: I wouldn't trust the guy....

Like I said: I dislike it too, but I don't know whether I like the cropped photo or not..... Here is an attempt....
