I worked ridiculously hard on this image, admittedly in circles, trying to get the right colors for the pigeon and the right colors for the stones and water. This is a major crop but still some sharpness on the pigeon.

*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

An excellent image assumed to meet the challenge.

I'm glad this didn't remain hidden! A great action shot, nice viewpoint and nice hint of motion and lovely muted tones throughout, definitely one of your best to date. It's a shame you have had to crop a little off the wing but its not major but the rest of the composition is working really well. There is nice sharpness on the back of the pigeon, it would have been nice to have the same sharpness on the head but again its only marginally soft and perfectly acceptable.

A great image that ought to have fared better than it did, can't say I understand the title though, if its crucial to the image' appreciation then this might explain why it didn't do better, Sid.
