Although this shot has probably been done thousands of times, I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. The angle was forced, but it suits a statue like this perfectly. The day was mostly overcast, which made for really good lighting, but I did want to bring out the bit of blue in the sky and the color of the statue, so I boosted the saturation a bit. Other than that, I just did my standard brightness/contrast adjustments and sharpened a smidgen.
