Hi Thor!
Those sparrows perched on the head of the statue make it look much better as a work of art :-).
That is how I see these birds in context. Hope they spare you of the Terms!
The picture is a beauty in its totality.

Hallo Thorsten!
A humorous composition with excellent colors and sharpness. Those sparrows live in the San Susi palace - how aristocratic!

Hi Thorsten,

An artistic image of sparrows with a beautiful statue.Good POV but the main subjects of the photo, the birds look a bit out focus, it seems they are regarded as too "little" for the sake of the whole image. :)

Well Done & TFS.

He He He...I have one of these photos. Apt title - she doesn't appear to be appreciating her 'friends'

Lovely capture of the cheeky chappies

They spoiled her haircut a bit. I guess this is the reason of headache ;-)
Nice picture with lovely contrast between strong blue and white. The sparrows look very nice and clear too.

Hallo Thorsten,
prächtiges Foto, perfekt belichtet, exquisit komponiert.
Die Spatzen, wie es scheint, sind echte Berliner. Genießen das Leben sans souci, sind frech, aber freundlich. Nehmen die Schönheit um sich herum gelassen hin. Gibt in Berlin & Umgebung ja auch genug davon.
Mit Dank und besten Grüßen,

Das ist ja soooo putzig, hab' ich komplett verpaßt, Thorsten.
Die steigen der Dame aber mächtig auf's Dach, gefällt mir sehr, Danke und Gruß
