• 2012***Image of the Week 28/10/2012-Winner**Alan Nicol**

    The winning image this week is "Pigeon in the Rain" White-headed Pigeon (Columba leucomela) by Alan Nicol. Congratulations Alan.


    Absolutely beautiful. Technically great and image just superb.
    Amazing image!
    At first glance i just love it....the raindrops add an extra interesting element that appeals to me too
    A lovely image that not only shows the bird off well also the elements in which they live.
    Fantastic image, made what at first glance is a fairly drab bird into something of real beauty, SUPERB!!
    Something a little different.. with the bird being in the rain has made this image stand out! In saying that the composition, detail and the way the light has been handled is extremely well done! Very nice image!
