This bird, possible a dove or pidgeon walking across the sand at Bondi Beach. Minimal PP and the foot is actually this reddish colour.

John's comment made me want to re-title this one Hot- foot!

Hi Murray,

A nice image of the bird, may be a pidgeon, the photo has a good composition, sharpness and nice colors. Thanks for sharing.


Hi Murray,
I like the simple but effective composition used here.
It's so good the details caught here, as the impressive red foot, that really stands out on the image.
I like also the shadow projected on the sand.
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hi Murray, nice composition of the "Rock Dove" (or Feral Pigeon) at Bondi. Talk about a hot foot. I like the way you've cropped this into the longer landscape format, giving him lots of room to walk. The stark shadowing is good too. I'm guessing from this shadowing that it was bright that day, and maybe your sensor toned down a bit leaving the shot a little dark. In any case I thought it was a little dark so I've created a workshop to lighten it up a bit.

Murray, instead of flying, walking...

This one has a very nice composition. I like contrast too.

Hello Murray,
Why fly when you can enjoy the fine sand on famous Bondi Beach..!
Well composed image, good details in this chubby pigeon (maybe too heavy to fly?)..!
