Used a wide aperture to slightly blur the background

This is a terrific image Steve and more so for, whilst the emphasis is rightly on Charles Rolls, the inclusion of the statue of Henry V adds another dimension. If memory serves, the 14th and 15th centuries saw the start of use of gunpowder being used in weaponry in Europe (although Henry didn't need it at Agincourt ) whilst the aircraft that Rolls is holding symbolises the start of the use of air power in all its forms in warfare. A fine photo and a history lesson all in one, great stuff Steve!

A great shot Steve, lots to enjoy and think about as Keith points out.
The accent on the statue with the other two aspects adding further interest, like it loads.
Just noticed what looks like an Ionic Capital supporting an Architrave and Frieze with various Ogee, Ovolo and Cove to the left of Mr. Rolls

Cheeky monkey George!

Well taken I would say, you seem to have selected the ideal POV Steve, to acheive the photo you were after.

So what's the connection between Charles Rolls and Monmouth? Ah.. his ancestral home is there. As Keith implies, bot were leaders in their fields at the time.Very nicely done, Steve. I'm glad the background wasn't blurred too much.

Fab stuff Steve - I love statues and this image has several plus a wonderful aspect at the back with a clock.. Love the aspect and it's full of interest, well done!
