Nice the way the shadow in back gives definition to the bird while it is in the light.

Oink oink! Laugh. That's one way to get a pigeon to hold still for capture.

Nice one, pigeon with a mouthful. The child's shadow is a little distracting, otherwise, this is a good one.

I might suggest waiting for a different time of day to shoot this, when the lighting isn't so harsh and won't create abrupt shadows. Also, I wonder how this might look if you brought the camera even lower, so you were level with the bird, and didn't crop the tail so tight.... however for all I know the background was too cluttered for lowering the camera angle to work. Just a thought.

Nice job keeping the light on the bird, and using the shadow to set him off a bit!
