What a great photo! You almost think that you be there next to him. He is sitting very quiet and is waiting to the pigeon to move..

Very sharp!
Beatiful colours!
Well done!!

Hi Karina,
A cute photo my dear, very adoring how the little boy is acting with the pigeons. Perfect sharp and a wonderful composition. A pity the two birds in the lower left corner aren't fully captured. But it's a superb posting, job well done and TFS!

I like this composition because you got down to your son's level to shoot. Very cute to see him looking at the pigeons.
I notice he is wearing a winter jacket. What is the temperature there at the moment?

superb shot Karina!
It's simply beautiful.

best regards, Daniel

WOW very beautiful clean and sharp photo! I love the expression of the boy and sitting between the pigeons. The, in the back, blurred pigeons give a nice 'dreamy' effect. Great mood photo!
Well done.
