hello Stephen, Nice street shot from Parma. You focus here on the pigeon. The man, rather fat, saw an attractive girl so stopped reading the newspaper and watches. I like prosciutto di Parma and parmesan :).
Warm regrads Malgo

Good street scene capture from Parma. I like your selective focusing on the pigeon who is watching the camera. The man has got bored of reading and is watching some thing interesting. Nice one thanks for sharing.

Je trouve que tu jettes un beau regard sur les choses qui t'entourent avec une petite point d'humour. L'homme confortablement assis avec son verre de vin admire les belles filles qui passent. Le pigeon quant à lui prend la pose.

Funny capture, as you focus on the pigeon, and it's a brilliant shot of the bird, the man sees another fine bird and decides to focus his attention there instead. The depth of field makes it seem like an incidental capture, which adds to the humour. The pigeon also looks like he could be talking to you!
All the best

Belle photo amusante où il n'y a que le pigeon qui soit intéressé par le photographe. J'aime bien la couleur des tables qui rehausse l'image. Bien fait.

hi stephen. this is a surprize photo, i wasn't expecting to see this pigeon from the thumbnail :) it reminds me a lunch i had in rome: i was having a spaghetti when 6 or 7 pigeons intruded my meal. it was the first time i saw something like that, and excited by the fuss, i left the meal to them, despite two yelling waitresses who tried to dismiss the pigeons around the plate :)

namaste, a nice composition here. Love the colourful atmosphere. The person is well placed in the frame. Excellent daily life presentation. Tfs.

a delightful and relaxing scene from daily life in Parma in the summer. I like very much the way you juxtaposed the two "watchers" and how you placed them diagonally in your frame. It's great that they are looking to different directions, the background offers some hint as to what has attracted the gentleman's attention. I like very much the perspective and timing of your capture, the bright colours are very agreeable too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
