Monument to Peter The Great (The Bronze Horseman). St. Petersburg


Adjusted selectively Built in 1768-1782; sculptor E. Falconet.

I think, the version of this image where I selected statue, stone and sky and adjusted them separately looks better (shown to the right).

This picture illustrates Sky as a part of photograph guide and is included in Picture Collection (ref. nr. n20-1) on Photo Pages
