You got a great shot there. Seems more like a woman than girl in the shot but whatever, it's not like this shot needs a title :)
Top5 fave of mine from the challenge.

I *love* this shot! It has great action--the stop motion of the pigeons is great! In this challenge I've usually preferred to have the models eyes somewhat towards the camera....but I just love this shot the way it is! Definitely tells a story and fits the challenge very well!

Like it, think it´s more of a street candid though than a portrait but what the heck, this shot is pretty cool and I gave it a 7.

I've heard of crazy pigoen ladies, but this is pretty crazy! Nice capture. Seems just a touch oversharpened though

Wow this is a very nice shot. I really like it. The B/W is very nice and the birds make a fine frame around the subject.

Beautiful ! This is what I've been looking for in this challenge. I like the use of b/w for this one. The composition, her in thirds and the birds bringing the eye in (leading lines so to speak) really add to this photo. 10

The stop action, DOF and tones are all outstanding! Great composition.

Nice picture.

Well done...... satisfies the challenge...... great choice using b&w...... the bg is a perfect canvas for what is in focus.. your DOF was great enough to capture the birds and subject, yet, shallow enough to put the bg out of focus. Really good job!

Lovely action. Would just have liked a little more face to be revealed.

I love this in so many ways. I can't see her eye - but I know her look. Just the very glimpse of here face makes the viewer wonder if this person is from another world - in touch with something people are rarely in touch with. The mid-air pidgeon and the shoulder pidgeon are just awesome. The blacnk and white suits this perfectly. 9 and fave.

This is really great candid capture. The blown out whites give the windows an interesting optical illusion sort of effect.

Love the shallow DOF and your choice of B/W. I would have liked to see the woman looking up at the camera as in true portrait style as this looks more candid. It is a nice shot.

Really nice street image, but I consider this a candid not a true portrait. If she were looking at you, knowing she was being photographed, I think it would suit THIS challenge better.
