I guess, what Ken is talking about is not the framing but rather how 
the head is turned.  I agree with that.

I like LRC10100 the most.
I think that one is what Ken referred to as "the second image".
The "sixth" (10107) is just a bit too much straight, it needs
 just a bit more turn of the head.



PS. Regarding the "model":
In some countries, sparrows are a nuisance, pretty much like pigeons
at a city square. I know, I also like taking photos of something that 
"normal" people consider as nuisance at best, or ugly and gross
