Robbie Burns and Cathedral

Dunedin was mainly built by settlers from Scotland and the influence is still strong, including the statue at Dunedin's centre (the Octagon) of Robbie Burns, Scotland's most famous poet. In the background is the Anglican (!) cathedral of Dunedin, I'm not sure what Robbie thinks of that, or of the sea gull perched on his head for that matter.

Nice subtle colors in this photo. The green of the oxidised bronze of the statue and the neutral grey-browns of the stone in the background work well together. Because the form and color of the background doesn't detract too much from the main subject having the background in sharp focus doesn't make the photo too confusing as it often would.
