Three Very Different Views

Three very different views of the same statue. It always surprises me how a subject can look so differently and bring about such varying emotions just by moving the camera to a new vantage point. Here I tried using cropping and light to achieve those different feelings. Which do you like?
Also, it is a little self-serving..OK...a lot self-serving to say that I have received my photo-clubs BLOG AWARD. I now possess this trophy for a month until we meet again to determine the next winner. I could technically win again, again and again. That is my plan. How did I win? I took a photo and posted one every day for the month which made me eligible for the drawing.
This photo was taken on Friday.

I like the first and the last...the first one seems so peaceful with the shadows you have captures. But the last one is haunting to me. The more I look at it, the more I feel like that statue is laughing cruelly at me. Great job capturing the mood and different perspectives of this statue. And congrats on your victory last night:) You really do deserve it!

Congratulations again on winning the trophy. Don't get too used to it though, you'll have some extra competition in the next drawing.

I love, love the last one. The lighting is wonderful, the shadows define her face nicely and this view gives her face a serenely peaceful look.
