I caught this guy wandering near the Icecream van as we were on a daytrip to York. Recalling that there was a Pidgeon challenge (and on the off chance that I still had some time left to enter) I let off a couple of frames.

Looks a bit odd. Not sure if it was the use of flash, or something in the post processing, but the way the bird stand out against the background does not look right to me. Sorry.

A little too washed out, not very interesting use of the subject

I like the close up of the pigeon. It looks a little funny though. I don't know if its over sharpened or what. It just looks kinda odd.

Faster shtter speed, the shadow cast is awkward, was this with a mounted flash?

He looks as though he's on the "red carpet" at some swanky affair and has been caught by the flash of the paparazzi.
