    June.

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world
    today.

    I second what Mark said.

    Very clear. What makes it for me though is the continuation of the feather pattern very faintly in the air, off the body. It just brings a level of surprise and interest, and it creates a relation subtly beyond the usual color field treatment around a portrait.

    If I were waxing poetic, I would consider that rhythmic echo like a visual representation of the cooing sound they make -- like subtle waves of pigeon-ness in the air, as if the bird is delivering a soliloquy about the utter bliss of perching on a statue whilst doing Shakespeare in the Park.

    Thank you so much gentlemen for the kind words.

    Mark, the feathers were tricky spent a lot of time on them.

    DA the effect you noticed was produced by spraying colour on the background layer and going over it with the Frosted Spots knife preset. I find I use that preset quite often.
