Default Just an everyday pigeon

I like to try to make images of things that we see everyday.... But I attempt to capture them in a way that we do not think of them.

This is a photo of a everyday pigeon.... but I have not seen many shots of pigeons that attempt to bring out their real beauty?

Believe it or not....they are tough to shoot in flight... I would guess that, that is the reason we never see in flight shots of them

I do not know if I succeeded.....but here it is anyway.

Comments and suggestions welcome.

Cheers, joe

Wonderful shot. Love the dark background, great flight pose, and sharp where it counts. Well done.

Thanks for the comments and the words of encouragement. They are greatly appreciated.

They are fast and unpredictable.... So they are fun to attempt.

Cheers, joe

Love this shot Joe - the colors that you managed to capture in the eye, the legs and on the back of the wing. Your tining and composition is excellent... and the background color really compliments the shot.
