Two thoughts, and I'll come back later...

Strange vignettes left and right - like a light shining on a wall at the left, more conventional on the right. Would straighter be better?

I wonder if I want more contrast.

But beautiful, strange, interesting exactly as it is.

Sometimes real life throws up such perfect choreography.

Your title is just perfect - the image oozes symbolism and mystery.
Excellent !!!

It's very good Dora and the sort of picture you'd come back to look at again.
I can tell you what I would have done but I have the feeling that I more often than not I do the wrong thing. I would work on the light on the left to make it more like the effect on the right. If I had to give a reason for this I think it would be because the extra brightness on the left takes your eye there for no particularly good reason. The uniformity might work even better and any concentration of interest be on the bird with its wings open. I'd never have got such a good picture in the first place so what do I know?

Thank you so much everyone for you confirmation. I took this so long ago I can't remember where, played with it so much I can't remember what I did or why. Could never make up my mind about about such things as contrast. I like Dudler's darker blacks but I also like the hallelujah effect of more light. I see these guys as a street gang and the light at the left seemed to represent a door to their underworld. This is so outside of what I normally do, there was a sigh of relief with morning that it has met with your favour. Thank you again.

Excellent Idea and very well executed . The idea is sold by the title . I like the toning

This will be a personal taste comment but personally I could so either without the vignette or with rather less of it

But a great idea which is why I gave an award .

Happy New Year ( nearly )
