Sorry for the column on the left, but there was no other posibility to take the photo in that way to capture all of them…

Bravo pour cette photo réussie et pleine d'humour en plus de celui des deux personnages de la statue.
Why nobody else does't like it?

It seems to be a Botero work ( statues)
Funny capture indeed
May be it will be better if you crop the right part, leaving only the statues? Just my idea

Hai un nome antico e significativo (bifronte) ..la foto con due momenti uno immobile delle due "statue" e l'altro fin troppo vivo ed in movimento.
Classicismo e dissacrazione.

A very nice sculpture you have found in Calgary. These statues of the businessmen look so real . Are they making conversation to strike a deal. As a nice contrast, you have included the real people doing their own things without worrying about the other.

I have walked by this statue hundreds of times, and it takes someone from away to bring new life to it. I like the fact that you have included the two figures to the right. It makes for some good contrasts: humans vs statues, formal vs informal, etc. I agree that removing the column would be good, but it still is a great shot.
