This pigeon was not comfortable on the spike and tempted me to do the picture.

It's always challenging and rewarding when you can capture a closeup of an animal in motion and this was very successful. Great focus on the bird.

Good composition, the emtpy sky nicely attracts the eye to the subject. I would like a little more DOF, the tips of the wings of the bird are out of focus which (to me) looks a bit strange. -stephan

That is an awesome angle that you took this one. I thought I wasn't gonna give another ten judging by the thumbnails,( I don't have that much left to vote on.) But this is just great. The bird looks like he's flying away with the cross. The wings even seem blurred like its flying. Great shot!! 10

I like how you have cropped this--it makes it look like the bird is carrying the cross! karmat

I think your title is odd. I like the photo, and think it would also work in a portrait frame, cropping much of the left side.

i like the title but maybe shorter like special delivery nice going! 8

I think the negative space helps out on this one. I would have liked more stop motion on the bird. 7

Very nice shot! The bird in motion adds quite a bit to this rather than if it was still :)

I'm fairly new to photography and so far I've had the hardest time catching birds flying close enough to get a good shot much less on a cross!

LOL. The framing makes this picture.

the angle of the metal piece really draws the eye to the bird... very nice

some movement in the bird's wing--nice enough picture

How long did you sit and wait for this shot?? ;-) Great neg spc shot in my opinion. I like the composition, and, while I do like the shot, it just doesn't "do" anything for me. lhall-7
