I love sculpture.
Perhaps it’s the combination of art and craft that appeals to me as a photographer.
I specially love outdoor sculpture in public places where the sculpture becomes part of the everyday environment.
And while all outdoor sculpture will react to the elements wooden sculpture is specially liable to weather and change as time passes.
Even more reason to capture an image for ever.
For this photograph of a wooden couple, I had the problem that the street was busy and I decided to isolate the heads.
I had a choice: to crop the picture tighter in the camera and exclude a few overhanging bits of building or to clone them out.
I decided to keep the image size I wanted and clone the sky background a little to provide a cleaner background.
As I was shooting handheld, I kept the Image Stabilizer on while using my Canon 75-300 IS zoom.
