Hello Serge,
My first thought was why you chose to capture the statue from behind depriving us of her face. Perhaps, the background facing the other way was not so interesting or amenable to being photographed? I like the contrast between the green tones of the statue and the background tree. Very good rendering of the textural detail.

Hello Serge,

We missing a little bit of the feet, but this is a small detail on the lovely picture.
Wonderful perspective and depth picture.
An excellent composition and lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice day,
John

Bonjour Serge,

Les arbres cadrent bien le monument. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du monument. La bonne luminosité fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.

Good day.
An interesting view, good text ...
Good work, beautiful woman shown figure, good contrast, nice colors. Beautiful female figure and a green tree with beautiful flowers.
Have a nice and successful day, all the best.

Bonjour, cher Serge,
Cette figure allégorique (dont le nom est utilisé par un grand groupe d'assurances) semble bien rêveuse, elle a déposé les armes à voir la lance et le bouclier déposés.
Une très originale prise de vue.
Amitiés.
Philippe

Bonjour Serge,

I remember all Swiss stamps bearing the word 'Helvetia' on them so this makes sense.
I'm not sure whether you showed us the back of the goddess so that we could see her spear and shield or whether an alternative view would have a distracting b/g (here the tree makes a b/g against which the statue shows up well).
Whatever, this is a crisp shot and the statue is well positioned in the frame.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

An important statue for Swiss, very nice shot with perfect details
regards Ryszard

Salut Serge,
Une belle attitude pour cette statue, elle est bien mise en valeur sur ce fond de feuillage, bon complémentarité de teintes,si on voulait pinailler (ce que je vais faire !), on pourrait remarquer que tu lui as coupé les pieds, un détail !

Hello Sergio, Nice view of this pensive Helvetia. Lovely composition although a pity her feet is cut :). Nice contrast of the p[ale green and the green of the tree behind.

Kind regrad s Malgo

Bonjour Serge,
Good photo of this statue of the personification of Switzerland. The gentle light touches Helvetia very nicely and you placed it well on the right hand side of the photo.
