    Jade - I think Franz was raising one or two - how else could he be so relaxed for that 30 sec shot lol.

    I think the only thing Mepo was raising in this Challenge was a bottle...lol! And it worked out for him!

    Very funny. In my favs.

    Looked up the statue and it's really humerous. I love your take on the theme - not only is it well taken, but it's hilarious!

    Sorry, Jade...
Giving a link to the city of Aachen in the extra-info would directly uncover me as the photographer I thought... But you see everything you need. The pigeon as the plagiarist and the chicken as the original.

    Wish I had the link now. Nice pigeon, crummy background.

    I wish could have gotten more of the monument and less of bulding in background in photo but I'm sure by doing that would lose the bird as main focus. Couldn't have gotten better timing of bird landing where it did to capture this. Well done.

    Sorry fc, but that wouldn't leave enough space for a pigeon that could be about to lift off...
actually it did not. It kept on drinking. I took a really cool series of that.

    imo I would have cropped the left hand chicken as it is not taking part in the picture. the white line could have been cloned out with a crop on the right hand making a square picture

    Reminds me of the Bremer Stadtmusikanten!

    Here is the link to pictures of the spring:

Michael, I had problems with the wire AND the composition.
But I found this simply funny and wanted to show.

EDIT: and Wikipedia:
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hühnerdieb (hm... I don't understand why the link does not work...)
Post EDIT: ok, the 's' of 'https' had to go... ...a hint for the extra infos in the next challenge!

    This is a very attractive shot. I would have cloned out the white wire but that's a minor quibble. Pigeons are such a nuisance but you have made this one look very interesting. I think the statue on top of this fountain looks very much like one of our members - the green colour gives it away LOL
