Agriculture and Victory

The Queen Victoria Memorial in front of Buckingham Palace is quite unique. It has several sets of bronze statues around the base of the monuments, which is ordained with angels and Queen Victoria. This is the other view of the woman with a sickle and lion, representing Agriculture.  The gold statue at the top is called Victory. I wish the day we visited had been prettier, but in London, you get used to the grey skies.

This is actually a good example how HDR photography can bring out the details in the dark bronze. Normally, the statue would be all black, with a bright sky. The three images combined allows for more details throughout.
