Located only a few steps from the Hooghly River,Kolkata the Mallick-Ghat flower market is the perfect destination to view in a different perspective at one of the Kolkata's famous brands, Howrah Bridge.One can find these pigeons all around the year here, which are fed the cereals daily by the stall owners and visitors.
While raoming around in a foggy winter morning I found them flying with joy in the sky of city of joy.

Excellent composition, very nice timing, very good POV, I like the graphism with the flying birds and the misty atmosphere.
Have a nice weekend, Vasilis.

This is indeed a nice capture. Most of us tried to shoot from this place, But this is one of the best I ever saw.

Use of fast shutter speed is critical here & you've done well! The flight of the pigeons have been well captured against the misty backdrop of Rabindra Setu
Wish you the very best for 2012, filled with happiness, prosperity & good health
