A narrow band to say the least. The bird, the approach and the colours say soft…..the image is sharp. Opposites come together to create something special.
Nice! I really love this shot! The soft colors and the narrow depth of field really work for me.

Very nice contrasts (and similarities.)
dof? There isn't any!!
Extremely well done Randy!
Nicely done, Randy!
I have never shot a 500mm but have plans to rent the 500 e FL for Costa Rica next month and am very much hoping that I may return home with some photographs as beautiful as your pigeon>
Thanks Ann, the 500 is great in Costa Rica, way easier to handle and the f/4 and 500 really help with so many small birds in dark places
thanks Alexis and Georgie
Like the soft pastel colors.
Really nice shot Randy! I wish the birds tail didn't extend out of the frame. There is a dust spec in the upper right corner.
Been contemplating another bird thread to feature, ( so many great threads, and it is our most popular forum) so I thought about your Bosque series, the Caracara shots, etc etc, any nmber of shots from others here, Pacific NW stuff etc.... but this shot, won me over.
Superb image, great symmetry and mirroring coupled with the soft grace. Flaws, sure a minor one maybe, but it is a special image, different and unique!
This bird photo really is something special. The colors, dof, reflection, all just make it superb.
I couldn't resist
Charming photo, just goes to prove, beautiful images can indeed be made from common subjects! Top job Randy.
thanks Wade, my 1st
thanks Michael...that did bug me so now it's gone
Excellent picture...I held off on commenting until I saw the second photo. I much prefer the latest version of this picture...with the frame not cutting off such a small portion of the bird. I think the composition could have gone either way--either a tighter crop or the wider crop (second version).
One nitpick...I would still clone out the sensor dust spot in the upper right segment of the frame. The sensor must be getting a bit dirty if a dust spot shows using such a narrow aperture!
