Racing pigeon perching on satellite TV dish.
In the original shot background tree and sky was a bit too harsh, and I've blurred the background slightly in Photoshop.
I've also uploaded the originals. You're welcome to try it out with different background.
This is a 70% crop of the original. Shot was taken last week afternoon testing the lens. The afternoon sun lighting was very bright. I'm happy with details captured after sharpened it a bit in post processing.
Any advice and critique are welcome.
