Pigeons are a common site therefore we tend to overlook them but they are beautiful. Please comment on the on the close up factor :)

Hi Natasja
Good focus and catchlight in the eye. Maybe, in my opinion, the crop is a little too close. Maybe the beak could have been included, but it's your decision and choice.
Possibly the image has been over sharpened.

Excellent eye contact! Very nice details on the plumage and the eye
Happy New Year!
regards Ryszard

Hello Bokkie

The close crop is what makes the image work. The saturation of the eye makes the bird stand out in the image. Good crop


I like close up pictures and still wants to buy myself a Macro lens. That been said, the close up is to close and devalue the photo. Only my opinion.
