A matter of size by LoganX78 A matter of size by LoganX78
Welcome in Milan.

This is a sculpture of Gino de Dominicis, a trepassed artist (in 1998). Title of sculpture is "Calamità cosmica" and it's exposed in Milan, Duomo's Square :)

In this shot i try to show you SIZE of sculpture... with Palace, square and... one old guy :)


I use a little grain to give a strange effect to the shot; i hope u enjoy.

It's... A MATTER OF SIZE.

Notice the human's size, the building's size and then the sculpture size? In A matter of size by =LoganX78 size does seems to matter in a whole new cosmic scale!

That's really cool. It's like if Gulliver died in Lilliput.

I don't remember if I've commented before, but I think this photo of Calamita cosmica is way better than those I saw on Google. The angle was great, especially with the inclusion of the building and most importantly the old guy. Thanks for sharing this epic win of a photograph ^^

La statua mi fa davvero schifo, ma mi ricorda una delle cose + belle che mi siano mai successe... era il 2007 e stavo iniziando ad uscire con quella che ancora adesso è la mia ragazza :hug:
Dopo 15 giorni esatti dalla data di upload eravamo ufficialmente fidanzati :blowkiss:

Is it just me, or is there something wrong with the nose?

I know you didn't create the sculpture, but would you happen to know what that point that nose would be?

Is it weird that before anything else, I notice that the nose is really inhuman? :XD:

Great shot, though. I love how the scale of it was shown, what with the buildings and the old man. The angle the shot was taken at definitely added to it. :)
