Love the statue shot, can you tell me where it is? Also, the vibrancy of the sunflower is great. Did you use a filter?

Thanks for the comment - sunflower, nope taken as is.

The statue is called "Solace In The Wind" by Brit born Sculptor Max Patte who works (still?) for Weta Workshop who are the guys and gals that helped give us Lord Of The Rings, King Kong and much more - based in my home suburb, Miramar (more at http://www.wetanz.com/holics/index.php?itemid=165&catid=2).

It is on the Wellington waterfront in front of Te Papa (New Zealand national museum) - here's a map to see exactly where: http://www.zoomin.co.nz/info/nz/wellington/te+aro/-solace+of+the+wind+statue/
