Only just made it in time for today's SMFC. This is by Rick Kirby the sculptor that created the last couple of big face pics. This one is on a roundabout in Ipswich and is made of stainless steel. It is called "Formation" and the figures are flying through the air (or swimming ) with arms wide open. #SMFC #wide #sculpure #art


charmychelle: An exceptional shot of this amazing sculpture! 😯👍👍 I must admit that I would find it quite distracting if I was driving in the area, so thank you for preparing me! 😅 Fantastic! xxx

hogman72664: Thanks Michelle, I made a special trip yesterday to capture this for you. This is the local sculpture that I mentioned last week. I think you would be distracted by the eateries around this site. Frankie's. Toby carveries, KFC, Chiquita, etc. There must be well over a dozen restaurants around this sculpture, if you look in zoom you can just see part of a giant chair behind the post on the right of the sculpture. It's not too clear but this is my first RAW file edit that I could even stand to look at let alone post. I always struggled with it. Now give me a few months and I might produce something I like. :):)Xx

mariacarmen: Beautiful sculpture😍looks amazing with the blue sky.. you know reminds me of our Papantla flyers, they are real people called bird men, they make a number of turns, which symbolize solar cycles is a beautiful ritual😊

hogman72664: Thank you , thank you and thank you for mentioning these incredible people. I googled them and watched a few videos, it is crazy, fascinating, totally beautiful and unique. I love it, I love them for their bravery, art, agility and keeping this tradition alive. Awesome, do you have any pics of them? Thanks Maria, I'm falling very much in love with your country and culture, is colourful and beautiful and very complex to an English lad like me. WOW :):)

_marisol: To me they´re swimming, always loved swimming, not too much flying (on a plane) cos´I´ve flown so much and it´s frickin´boring. Ok, Mr Kirby again, he seems to know what he´s doing as this sculpture is stunning. Is lit up at nights? It´s worth it! Extra points come from the left upper corner´s overexposure. Pretty often we try to avoid it but if you succeed in doing it properly it works for your benefit artistically. Great shot in every way. Have a nice week :):)

hogman72664: Thank you so much, if you read my comment to Michelle you realise that I persevered with RAW editing and this is the first that I haven't dumped. Thank you for explaining the merits of it many months ago. It has lights at the base of it so I presume it is lit up at night, I will make a special trip out there as soon as possible. I did struggle with the left upper corner but couldn't quite get what I was after, although as you've probably guessed by now I'm very pleased with this pic and hope to improve my RAW work over the coming months. Thanks again :):)
