Default A Balcony

This snap I took of a historical structure in Rajasthan, India, last year.

Thanks for viewing.

Arun,

Starting with a compelling and intricate architectural mosaic of tile and stone work, this is tough for any bird to stand out. If, indeed the bird is to make it as as a subject here, at the very least one needs to emphasize the bird somehow and blur the stonework. One could show the bird in a cropped version if there's enough detail. Dwayne Oakes has a similar issue with a picture of a small wren on an iron fence/gate, also against a very strong detailed wall of stonework.

I would love to hear about this architecture. Such an amazing amount of effort!

Asher

I second what Asher has said, Arun. The bird is a confusing point of focus and it's shape on the balcony doesn't do it justice either.

Probably you are right about the bird.
Here are some more shots without bird belonging to the same series of snaps.
