Just Hanging Out With The Birds       ©2017 jomari
Panasonic DMC-FZ70       14th place, 60 points
1/2000s, f5.6, ISO 160, 20mm, Landscape, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Crop and straighten, denoise, adjust colour and saturation, used patch tool to remove lens flare from water on left and colour replacement tool to subdue lens flare on the boardwalk , used spot healing tool to remove a few tiny bits in the water.       Extra Info: Not very long after I arrived at this spot, my solitude was interrupted by some walkers and the birds all flew away. :-(

    Thanks for the comments. I did wonder if this would be seen as a crowd. It was really my own solitude that counted to me.
The birds are cormorants, Elliott. They spend a lot of time hanging themselves out to dry.

    love this shot. i might not be on board with the solitude as it seems a bit crowded out there.
can't tell if they are cormorant or anhinga. neither have oil on their feathers like other water foul so they do this to dry out. the first time i saw one of these, it was on a fence post near a swamp and i did a double take as i passed. thought it had to be some kind of metal or wooden sculpture to be like a scarecrow or something. i think i backed up a half mile to look again and get a photo.

    Great job taking your photo without disturbing the resident waterfowl. Certainly gives a sense of peace and suspended animation.

    Too good a photograph to leave out of my tt.

    I love this composition! All the birds with their wings open make me smile. I definitely feel the solitude, in a peaceful way.

    A good take on the challenge
Although there are many subjects the birds are only interested in one thing.....survival
