I never seem to consider cropping much - I do need to take a longer look at that! I liked the pigeon in the lower left, but I can see where the man and woman on that side need to go. So here's an alternate crop. Thanks for the comments!!

Nice job, Deb — two favs and an excellent placement. It is a charming photo. Too bad about the woman’s nose missing. And with the alternate crop, you lose one of the pigeons. Tough call. But I would have scored it higher if the half-face weren’t distracting.

Lovely and fun image. Tough call on the crop -- looks good either way. Cropping out the woman leaves things a tad tight.

Favorite... both with and without the crop this was my high scoring image for the challenge. Congrats.

This would have been a ten from if it wasn’t for the woman and man(?)
to the left, who upset the balance. Nonetheless, in my top 3.

The lady on the left is distracting my focus on your main subject. Should have cropped/ cloned away.

Adorable! I don't like that woman's face being chopped off... I'd have cloned her out (totally legal to do). But the rest is so good! 7 from me.

Oh, I can just see the chase continuing as long as there are pigeons nearby. Harassing pigeons is a time-honored tradition for small children :-)
