Steven from Chicagoland, United States

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

Philip from Cowbridge, United Kingdom

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

21 Oct 2009 8:52pm

@Philip: These figures are attached close to the portal, I think the upper one was 2m above me.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

A most inspired shot! I like it....the Man's ordeals and the Lady's detachment!

@Japanalia: Things you know get most interesting when you recognize them in past times.

Twelvebit from Victoria, United States

Looks like a lot of erosion here.

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