A pair of pigeons sitting on an old bridge over the river Lune.

Nice image but the ironwork below the birds draws your eyes away from the main subject. Perhaps a little cropping would help.
I have to agree with Christopher. You certainly captured the subject you were after, but with so much around it, that it's a bit distracting. A crop helps the viewer focus just on the pigeons. I've uploaded a mod to give you an idea how a crop gives the image more impact. I rotated it slightly first to get the ironwork of the bridge that they're standing on a bit more level (could perhaps have rotated a little more, but I'm on my work pc and don't have PhotoShop on it, so it's not that accurate what I do here). Then I cropped it, making sure I didn't make the pair of pigeons too central, but giving the one on the right, which is facing outwards, still a little space to look into. Hope this example helps you somehow.
Oh, and I notice that you have chosen an aperture that blurs the background a little. Selecting an aperture that's bigger than what you used here (a lower number) would have blurred the background even more and would have made the pigeons stand out better.
