Hey I think it is set up pretty well. I am not sure what you are really going after, but I notice the blips of light from the reflective surfaces on the statue, is that your main point? The contrast of the statue against the sky is just enough to give it defination, and the lighting on the handle leads the eye to that area. Over all I'd say you did pretty good...

Thanks for the critique. I posted this because I was wondering if others saw this as a picture of a stature made worse or better by the light or if they saw it as a picture of some interesting light falling on a statue.

I took this at a place known for it's impossibly white surfaces covered with mirror bits, the white wat in Chaing Rai, Thailand. I was intrigued by the statue's mirrored bits being close to blown out highlights even though they were in the shade. Seemed to me there was a subtle dialog between the shady side of this statue and the implied reflective surface behind it, seen in both the previously mentioned mirrors and the white blotches, which are reflections of mirrors out of the frame.
