Hello friends, i was sit in border
of the pond when this pigeon came
and pass in front of me

from Seattle Audubon Society website

« Rock Pigeons, more commonly known
simply as just "pigeons," are familiar
birds in any developed area. Chunky birds
with sharply pointed wings, Rock Pigeons
are found in a variety of colors and patterns,
although all gray is most common. Rock Pigeons
have black bills with white fleshy bases,
red eyes, red fleshy eye-rings,
and salmon-colored feet. »

Hello Asbed,

Great composition of this pigeon in flight. I find these birds to be noisy flyers & they often catch my attention at dusk as they move toward their roosts. In this case, the exposure makes the wings seem overly large & coupled with the tangled backdrop creates a unique, special mood. Well done on this capture!

Dear friend Asbed,
I see that you like shooting birds in flight.I know it is very difficult.But the important is DO YOUR BEST AND HAVE FUN,don´t you think so? You pic here has a strange 3D effect (like those Japanese cards).Lovely effect but it needs a little more sharpness. TFS
Regards from,

HI Asbed,
another as I say "dynamic" photo. Excellent capture of flying bird. Of course great POV. Very good sharpness on the head and nice blurred working wings. Nice natural colours.
Have a nice Friday.

Hello Asbed,
A fine combination of movement, colours and patterns provided by the OOF branches. The total effect of this in-flight of a feral pigeon is very artistic with a fine contrast of the grey against the dark natural BG and the head makes a good focal point,
Thanks and kind regards,

Wow ! Now that's my friend Asbed Iskedjian ... the man with the most unique stile in Photography here in Treknature, isn't it?!!! Brilliant work indeed, brilliant!

Bonjour Asbed,
Voilà une iamge intéressante et parfaitement réalisée. Quelque fois il suffit d'un peu de chance! Très belle présentation décentrée et fine suggestion du mouvement. Un arrière-plan intéressant aussi.
Bonne fin de semaine

Hello Asbed,
A beautiful capture of a Rock Pigeon nicely timed with focus on the eye and I like the shape of the wings. A nice blurry effect in the background too.
TFS and have a nice weekend, Ulla

Another impressive photo Asbed!! The composition and the colours are excellent.

Interesante "congelación" del vuelo de esta paloma.
Bonitos colores y original presentación.
Saludos Asbed.

Bonjour Asbed,

L'oiseau est bien placé dans le cadrage. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du pigeon en vol. Le léger flou des ailes indique le mouvement. La lumière a un bel effet sur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
