[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I would like to thank Mr.Victor
for giving me suggestions on improving the original.

I made the following changes from the original image.
1. Cropped the bottom part of the picture to remove the disturbance caused by the window grill.
2. Cloned the image by using Healing Brush Tool in Adobe Photoshop 7.
3. Ran the image through Unsharp Mask increasing sharpness by 100% and threshold by 19%.
4. Canvassed the image.
5. Increased a bit of saturation using Picasa to reveal the eye colours more.

This shot was taken from my window at my residence in Vasai. These pigeons are common here.
