  #103 It's Flying
Entry 8 of 16
   
 
Arrowhead Formation       ©2011 Terraliptar
Casio EX-FS10       8th place, 41 points
1/1000s, f3.9, ISO 160, 38mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Cloned out two stray birds and some dirt/rubbish, adjusted levels and saturation, cropped, resized and sharpened.       Extra Info: I feel a little bit guilty about this photo as to get it I slowly crept up to the birds and then stamped my foot to make them take off.

    forkcandles, I used Casio's 30fps shooting mode with pre-record and chose the best shot (i.e. no skill was involved :-).

    On the plus I love the framing, grouping in the top half and leaving some territory below so the viewer knows from whence they departed. The shadows add an essential perspective of height and distance and the trail curving off compliments the kinetic qualities and also is a metaphor for the journey lying ahead. The clean background is essential and well done. This works well on many levels with many layers of meaning possible from a simple natural capture of common pigeons taking wing, to concepts of travel, flight, and journey into other realms. On the minus, the birds are a little blown (overexposed), they appear to be smashing together and hard to distinguish as individual forms, overall sharpness could be better, and I have this thing about the backside of any animal.....
