This is a seasonal, snowy scene for your enjoyment!
These pigeons appeared to be on a slide as they perched on the roof of a nearby barn.
I cropped the photograph to give more attention to the birds.
Seasons Greetings to all on TE, Bev :-)

A jolly out of the ordinary Christmas card. Judiciously cropped to give an agreeable well balanced composition as well as focussing the attention on the pigeons. I like the contrasts in tone and textures. All the best for Christmas and the New Year.

We see clear that pictures have no date, this remain always nice to look at.
Your picture is very well taken and excellent made with the pigeons on the roof.
Wonderful light and colours.
An excellent composition, nice presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.
I wish you nice Merry Christmas,

Très joli titre pour cette composition. J'aime le cadrage serré sur la pente du toit ainsi que la texture de la pierre. Superbe diagonale avec un beau ciel contrastant.

It's simple but elegant. I don't know how much you cropped it, but the pigeons certainly get the attention they deserve. It's a very nice and eye-catching photo.
I wish you a Merry Christmas.

Hello Beverley,a simple but interesting shot.The crop has created an eye catching picture. The snow adds to the picture,which makes a fine line between the stone wall of the house and the cloudy sky.
Best wishes for the Holiday season.

This is a wonderful scene that so many people would not have even noticed. It reminds me of a TV-commercial ("advert" in the UK) where a composer is sitting at his piano frustrated by the lack of ideas for his next piece. Through the window next to him you can see a set of five parallel high tension cables with birds perched on them. There is some shuffling about of the birds and suddenly a theme emerges, the composer is inspired as he plays it out. The next scene is an orchestra playing the new composition in formal ware and a rapt full house listening.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family.

Good morning Beverley,
The thin layer of fresh white snow, diagonally halved the pic. space, marvelously composed.
The pigeons added much interest to the scene, and I always wondered how they stand in strait lines, like on an electric wire or edges like we see here. Worth a scientific survey maybe...

Such a nice photo of these pigeons at the edge of the snowy roof. The soft sunlight is very pleasant and I find the cropped composition very strong. Merry Christmas!

Beautiful composition. You took great advantage of the diagonal slope of the roof to frame the birds. And the bricks are very interesting. Congratulations! And Merry Christmas!

The repetition of the pigeons and the diagonal axis of the roof add interest to this shot. Good use of a shallow dof and the 2 birds in the sky provide a focal point. Tfs!
