wonderful! something interesting is going on with the pattern of the lines and the large number of randomly oriented pigeons. I don’t know what this pattern is/does precisely (photography theorists will surely be able to analyse/explain this), but it creates a strong visual effect for me.

Yeah, nice one. Seems like you could sell this one to someone looking for a cover image for a textbook about stochastic processes. (I mean that in the nicest way.)

It is nice Chris Bertram! The pigeons are all gathering on or close to the lines I think, thats what’s making the interplay of patterns — the straight lines of the paving with the pigeons sort of following it but not exactly or geometrically.

Love It!

Yes, great shot!

What everyone above says–simple but complex shot all at once.

If you to imagine the future of CT discussions… 😜

In all fairness, it’s a very good photo.

Has something of a Bridget Riley/op art effect on me. Nicely done.
