Great detail and textures captured in this close-up. Unfortunate that they had to put those "spines" up to detract the birds.

You must have been close for a 50mm lens. Was the picture taken from the ground?

@Philip: These figures are attached close to the portal, I think the upper one was 2m above me.
A most inspired shot! I like it....the Man's ordeals and the Lady's detachment!

Looks like a lot of erosion here.

@Twelvebit: You should see the figures at Cologne cathedral; the ones here look like new in comparison.
