Thanks for commenting Mark, glad you like it. I have no filters save a UV skylight, permanently attached purely for lens protection. The star effect comes from my habitual tiny aperture setting. Smile

Thanks Ian. Smile

This is like one of those children's books that have you looking for different elements! The f/g pigeon, starburst effect, highlighted buildings and bird roosting! Love the tones too. Have a good weekend's photography Eric.

An excellent capture and a super image. Somehow I feel I want to crop the top off the post to concentrate attention on the sunburst and the bird in flight (which then becomes more noticeable. Love the inclusion the pigeon bottom right, good work, I like it.
