So you may be at a disadvantage with me on this one because I am not fond of HDR or photographs of sculptures.
HDR tends to lack subtly. In most cases the colors are garish and cruel in my eyes.I am happy to say that is not the case here. However, the softening from the HDR removes some of the detail from the texture of the sculpture and gives a false halo to the image.
My problem with most sculpture photography is that the sculptor, if he or she is good, had created a work of art to be viewed from all angles. To take a photo of it, even a cropped one, is not very different from taking a photo of a painting or a photo or a photo.
This isn't to say it can't be done, especially if there is some surrounding context. (Saddam's stature being toppled comes to mind) But something specially needs to be brought to the photo.
