As a former city-dweller and bike rider I find this terrifying!

Pigeons and bikes. What's not to love?

A very interesting image. I just hope the bikers are prepared to do some clean-up!

Great b/w tones, wonderful activity, and bicycles. Love it.

Fantastic composition & eerie feeling in this one.

The owner of that bike is not going to be happy when he gets back...
The front three OOF birds detract a bit from the rest of the scene, but I'm no expert in composition yet...

This shot is really interesting in its composition for me, and I love the B&W. However, I'm not getting the wow feeling I think I should be getting from it. Maybe it's the angle of the shot or your depth of field. I can't quite identify what would make it better for me. Interesting though!

Nice...They all look sleepy.

they're stealing meh bike!

My two cents:

I think having the foreground row of birds in focus would have been a much better idea because they are facing me and i could get more of the image. Majority of the pigeons in the back row have their backs to me. The image is crisp and very well processed.

Wow, I hope the local bicyclists carry cleaning rags with them!

Oh...the composition is perfection...10

The composition seems too busy to me, but I am totally falling for the classy black and white, and the delightful way the shallow DOF brings out the feather textures. Very neat. :)

Bike riding pigeons! Awesome! LOL! 10

an interesting busy scene, if only that one in the centre had looked up

Oh dear - I'd not be all that pleased if that were my bike, and I LIKE pigeons! They look like it's a chilly, nasty weather kinda day and they're just hanging out waiting for someone to come feed them. I like this.
