Challenge: In the style of ' . substr('https://www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('https://www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' streetpigeon

Rich has a unique vision and style to his images. Very noticeable in his portfolio, and it comes thru in some of his challenge entries as well. Take a look around and capture an image that could be mistaken as a 'streetpigeon' capture.

Standard editing rules please.

I see a lot of his stuff is what I call semi-abstract. I like doing these but they aren't widely appreciated here.

Yup :-) As soon as I read that, my mind was made up :-)

BTW, I have added a link to Rich's profile in the Challenge description.

Well, in Rich's defense - he didn't ask for this challenge suggestion, I did. I wouldn't think it's fair to ask him to comment on all of them - unless of course he wants to. :-)

He might just reply "no comment."

Nope :-) But you can pay 5 bucks for a month of Blue Shirt and you're good to go :-) Tempting?

Thank you, Barry, for kindly putting my photographs forward as interesting enough to merit a challenge. No one was more surprised and befuddled than I was when it caught my eye a few days ago. Didn't even realize that I had a style. Also, thank you to those visionaries who've seconded the notion for such a strange adventure. I'm equal parts flattered and flustered - the latter in not knowing quite what to make of it. No false modesty here - my average vote received is 5.327; and if I have a style it doesn't jump out at you or, as a matter of fact, hardly peek out at you from around the corner. So many other members would, I'd think, precede me in this line.
If it becomes a done deal I'd be honored, and sure to comment universally. I find Don's support most touching, since his comments always cut to the chase no matter from which angle they spark, compared to my meandering. My honest feeling is that I hope to one day, to my own satisfaction, deserve my fellow DPCers' appreciation..
And thanks once again.

I think that's what I said when I was briefly threatened with this treatment some time ago ... as far as I can tell the most consistent aspects of your portfolio are clever titles, prioritizing of subject/composition, and a refusal to be pigeon-holed ... :-)

I don't think you committed to completing that task during the voting ...
