Ever since Ft. Wayne re-introduced the Peregrine Falcons to the area, the pigeons haven't been a problem. I couldn't entice them down, so this was as close as I got.

I love this photo. I gave it a 10. Really expected it to be in the top 3.

Great shot! the wings almost look opaque with this unusual lighting.

I like the building. The cloud on the right spoils it for me, but an interesting shot all the same.

There is a definite outline which is a shame as this has some great features

Awesome image! Has a very surreal effect. Normally I don't tend to like things centered in the image, but this works perfectly. The colors are great and the clouds in the background really work.

Very good setting to show them off - quite appropriate, actually, as they do tend to love large ornate buildings. Lovely shades of gray in this.
