Tammy/Cricket from Huntsville, United States

How touching. At least he is on the outside and not on the inside looking out. He has the freedom to fly.

This is a truly a great image. I love the B & W that you have chosen to use.

Love that frame in the frame, prison-like first sensation yet total free bird behind, and those soft tones & light in that graphic yet smoothy pic* Congratzzz, my delicate friend*

la libeté de l'autre côté des grillages, image symbolique et forte.. le jeu des ombres crée le côté abstrait de l'image .. seule l'oiseau est la touche de vie avec la lumière .. j'aime cette composition très particulière.

Doves must feel very lonely at the moment, everywhere around the world... I just hope one day, they will give us the opportunity of a huge flight.... Very clear message Marc.

Symbolic message indeed and i like the nice play of light and shadow (both sweet in the meedle & contrasted all around).

Nice image and I love the title.

Grahame from Mt Maunganui, New Zealand

Interesting, I read this image the opposite to the others.
The Dove is on the inside caged , alone and flying nowhere soon.
Symbolic yes, of the current state of humankind.
Either way, interesting image.

Beautiful nostalgic shot. Or, perhaps, a symbol of freedom desired...
Excellent light.

I like how this has been framed as is bound with solitude, similar to my post, though mine has a human presence
