Adamastor is a Greek-type mythological character famed by the Portuguese poet Luís de Camões in his epic poem Os Lusíadas (first printed in 1572), as a symbol of the forces of nature Portuguese navigators had to overcome during their discoveries.

friiskiwi says:

The focus of this images seems strange, the bottom part and the background seem to be in focus, but the statues face seems to be OFF.

author says:

Tks friiskiwi, perhaps I need to change my glasses or the grade of the camera. Thank you very much for helping. Wish you a nice day!

author says:

Ok, perhaps my glasses are wrong but principally in Hi Res I can not find that it's OFF... it looks strange like this.

author says:

Ok friends, help me... want to know more opinions if it is out of focus. Tks all for help and assistance, only in this way we can improve our work. Nice to receive opinion.

author says:

People help me... 2 for new glasses and no one to keep the same one.... perhaps I need to win the contest for US$ 10.00 to have money for a new one... come on people...like to know about...hugssssssssssss

author says:

Perhaps the author of the statue was needing new glasses too....

author says:

I received a private message from a colleague this site, very strange by the way, telling me to take care with the comments that I do - especially with the praise - and I clearly know this will always take my photos for the last place, I do not care and I'm not here to win or lose but learn and make friends. I think we are free to make good comments that make people get excited and do not give up or lose interest in photography or for participation here. Sure, help improve, but there are ways and ways to talk things out. No need to put this post in the photo as competitor, thus influencing the other vote. I know many are here only for the competition and are really playing with people, playing without any scruples and their only purpose is to make that the photos will be deleted or receive bad grades. In this way, many good photos are at the end and the other start. Ok, some deserve first places.. I'm not generalizating. Look, I'm not talking about my work - my photos, and I do not care if after this post I will be deleted from the site. I just believe that certain standards have to be reviewed here. A good week for everyone. And if I will be deleted ... I stay with good friends that I met here.

Nice composition but wrong focus point. With a sharp monster and less sharp background leaves should be much better. Cheers.

author says:

author says:

Mrs. friiskiwi I give a damn for what you do or think or what you do with my photos, my job or my stay here in this site....but I can not see people stepping on others and I keep quiet. This was not the first time you do this and surely not the last. If other tell me opinions about my photos I take into consideration... but you or a door I prefer the comments from a DOOR.

author says:

And also Mrs. friiskiwi, only because you are at first places in the contest with photos that surely does not deserve it, but you are old here and a lot of "friends of you " have more vote power than others , that gives not you the right to be the "photography god" and perhaps take away the only manner of people to have fun in life. I surely think that if all have the same vote power that your photos were not at first. Consider to be more humble and not take advantage of situations, even if you have given life by the site does not have the right to take people's joy. Perhaps I'm telling you what a lot of people here wants to say but they know (I know but I don't have anything to lost here) that if they do it their photos always will have troubles and last positions. Hope you have more "light" in your life! I'm NOT TALKING about my ENTRIES, MY PHOTOS because I know I need to improve a lot but I'M TALKING FOR A LOT OF OTHER PEOPLE here, who knows that if they told you something you make a X on the name and the person has no change again....

seems to me to focus but as I see it, even if it was soft. is a beautiful composition, which makes the powerful force of sculpture

author says:

The sculpture is around 3 meters..very big one. Tks for comment !

If you would prefer not to receive negative comments or constructive criticism, there is the option to click on "Private Comments or No Comments Allowed". Asking members to send you comments via PM on your entries is not the correct way for the contests. Also remember that a lot of members comment but don't vote immediately, therefore they wouldn't know who's entry it is anyway.

author says:

I love to receive comments in any way. Tks Mr.
