Bella foto. Alta nitidez y exelente momento capturado. La iluminacion es ideal en esta presentacion. Las alas son hermosas asi como el collar morado en la parte superior del cuello.

This is splendid with a capital S, let me repeat Splendid. Looking at the thumbnail, I knew I'll like this image over a thousand because I saw a hint of purple. This one is going straight to my theme called "My purple obsession" and straight to my favourites. Wow this is really spectacular. I love the way you have captured this bird in the air with its impressive wingspan. Everything on this photo is just awesome. I also like the way the bird is looking downwards. It might be a common sight for you but for me this is a very special scene. What I like the most is that shining purple patch. That just does it for me. Thanks for sharing.
Enjoy your day.

Superb action portrait of this common bird! (not so common on TN)
The lighting is great and the bright purple on its neck and the dark amber eye are like little ornaments on this gray bird!

Pigeon are quite commun but this shot is absolutely gorgious . One of the best I saw of this species ! WoW ! Congratulation !
A lovely in-flight shot of this rock pigeon. As it is in-flight bird shots are difficult enough and to get one with such a wonderful composition is obviously a bonus. It almost seems as if this bird came in especially for you to capture the shot.
I love the OOF and well removed BG as it isolates the bird and make it stand out in the frame. The colours are lovely and particularly the purple sheen around the neck area. The contrasts between the darker and brighter areas could probably do with a bit of "Shadow/Highlight" adjustment and for that I will prepare a workshop to experiment with the light and hopefully be able to show you what I mean. That would be to try and overcome the slight OE under the wing area and the slight UE around the neck and tail feathers. I really like the movement you have retained in the tips of the wings.
Well done and TFS.
