Cheers guys.
I had fun chasing through the pigeons. Hadn't done that since I was a kid.

Thanks Gerrit. I optimized the exposure (in post-processing) to make the white dove in the centre stand out. Unfortunately, the rest of the image got a bit overexposed by doing that. I guess I should have done some masking first.
I would also have preferred that the dove were outlined by the sky rather than the buildings. Unfortunately, doves are notoriously uncooperative...

@gerrit: I've done some editing now, and replaced the image above. The main impact is that the cobbles and buildings have better exposure and their colours look less washed out. Thanks for prompting me to actually do these edits.
