Santa Cruz Surfer Statue evening potrait

This was my first attempt at this angle and the twilight was still not completly dark and the half moon helped illumiate the sky. I found this angle by climbing a fallen tree and a street light illuminated the statue perfectly, but I was not able to get all of the boardwalk in the background with out also showing the streetlight pole. Although the un-cropped photo is a decent compositon, I felt that the pole devided the image too much and was distracting. Thus, the first portrait image of the two I was happy with.
