Answering to Greg's critique saying that "there's little relation between the birds and the parliament" in my previous picture, I'm posting this one from the same series. Hopefully, it is more balanced and brings out the relationship more clearly. I'd like also to note that, considering the latest events in London, this bird of peace looks especially menacing.
PP was simple and straightforward: just enhanced contrast to the maximum which turned the picture into a silhouette.

Nice composition. The B&W makes it look pretty good and the silhouettes are very sharp. Pigeons are always convenient animals to make pictures with (check my picture with the pigeons on a statue in Paris for it)...

Hi Eugene! Oh yes, that's a better composition. I did like the detail on the tower before, but this pure silhouette is interesting too - there's just enough detail to leave no doubt about where you are. This must be the most bizarre photo on TE. Great!

Nice image Eugene - my daughter has an amazing and powerful piece of film involving pigeons on Westminster Bridge - your graphic image is a really interesting compositional relationship - well done for creating this image.
best wishes Kev
