I'd tell you how to crop it, if I could see a pic.

Dang, you cropped it so tight there is nothing left to see. :)

Isn't this where we brag about our gear? I have a super hot wife, a really cool dog, lots of bikes, oh and some overly expensive camera gear.

Even an expert needs a photo in order to process it.

I'd crop to put the pigeon in the upper left strong point of the rule of thirds and include just the tops of the trees on the lower right. If that works may depend on the final intended use.

I personally think you're too far away to make anything of it. If it were me I'd crop the heck out of it if it were sharp enough. I have many shots like this of hawks that I doubt I'll ever use because I was just too far. You should be able to find some more pigeons and get closer though, they are common birds!

I think Dave's crop is as good as it gets. Definitely better without all the clutter on the bottom.
