The "big bird" shot is superb!  Not only the bird itself, but also the figures in the background.

Thank you. Them Gulls seem to be the true chiefs of this city. Huge they are and self conscious. Intelligent funny and
aggressive sometimes. I heared that in the past they faught with other birds for food. Now they fight with other birds
as food and thus contain pigeon population very efficiently. They Guardian printed a series on Friday whith a gull
eating a starling mother while here kids are waiting for food.

Nice series, +1 on the gull shot.

#4 would have been stronger IMHO if you would have lined up the "dildo" with the background church tower.

I like this series, shallow DOF and very selective focus ... leaning into the Gestalt end of seeing the world. The fast post officer is my fav.

+1 on the fast Post officer. His position and the right amount of blur on the bike and on the background make me smile.

OK. I am on a laptop here. So a preliminary rendering of an idea I like to go into more: find places on paintings and try to rerender their look as of today. ASAP back home I hope to work out something better not so easy to get into these churches. many of them are closed except for two hours on Sundays:

For me, the composition is better, also more in line with the "didlo" theme  8) 8)

The light in the first dildo picture is nicer though, but you can't all.
