Angel of the North sculpture, near Gateshead UK. It was an awful day, so I had to really push it in post to get some life into the images.

And one with Gillian in the shot, to give it some scale (she's very small) :)

Nice job with the post processing. Very interesting sculpture indeed. Was it a tad windy?

I like the fact that you included the trees, I have seen a fair number of images of this sculpture and they are usually grass sky and sculpture.

Good shots, I like the 2nd one with Gillian in it too for the scale. I remember when they unveiled this and thinking what an awful sculpture, but it has since grown on me and now I am a fan. I've only seen it a couple of times from the motorway when I've been driving up that way, but I hope to get chance to go a photograph it at some point. I think I'll have to make sure I go when there are some dramatic skies around like you have managed to capture.
