Taken in low light conditions, so requiring an ISO of 1600 to get the high shutter speed. I found the Digital Noise Reduction tool pf Paint Shop Pro 9, to give a less 'plastic' image than Neat Image.

It was very trying, standing in a load of doves trying to track them, they are even worse at composition than I am.
