Rock Pigeon

Photographed off the Gujarat coast; this rock pigeon was warming itself on a flood lamp which was put off just before it could perch. In the first photograph, I placed the camera on the bulwark of the ship, such that the lines of the bulwark lead the viewer to the pigeon. Since the background was bright, I had to overexpose the photograph to get the details of the bird, especially its red eye and golden breast.
