You have seen too many pictures of Haram”Khana Kaaba “(House of Allah), but this one has different view. I was capturing pictures of minarets of the Kaaba from the balcony of Abraj-al-Bait (one of the tower near Kaaba). From no where two pigeons show up and landed on fence of balcony, of course it was opportunity which otherwise hard to get.
I would like to thank those pigeons for staying calm:)

This is a very unusual view of the Kaaba.
The way you've presented the minaret with these two pigeons is well seen.
The one on the left seems to hail you !
Great colors and sharpness, and a lovely original frame.

Wonderful silhouettes and great idea and performance. You have created really nice depth in this picture and it's very colorful and beautiful. Compliments for that.

This is a very interesting image. The two pigeons frame the top of the minaret very well. The clarity and colours of the foreground lok great in my opinion. I feel that even without the pigeons this image would be attractive...The black frame you created for this image is awesome. I would like to know how or what program you used :-) Thanks!

it took me a while to watch your photo because it is an unusual one. I feel like making some noise to send away the pigeons so I can admire the superb view on Kaaba, but in same time I would like to enjoy the pigeons grooming and their silhouettes... i guess u made it: 2 photos in one! I am seduced by the frame: calligraphy on upper part, modern fonts on your signature and despite their very different styles, they fit perfectly together. Also the entire frame melts with the pigeons silhouettes.
Thanks a lot!

The compostion is impressive and the black silhouettes contrast so nicely against the blue sky and white buildings. Nicely done.

Wonderful composition! The silhouettes of the pigeons and the city in background are just perfect. Very well framed, with very good colours and a beautiful sky.
