    Thanks for the ID, their feet look different from the coots I've seen. Anyway, congrats on your top 10 finish!

    This was my #2 shot - I just loved the intense focus of the birds.

    Thanks for all the comments!

Ysal - they are coots.

JadeO - this is in colour! just another grey winter's day...

Jomari - glad you liked it - and I reciprocated in voting your inventive 'fence' photo #1!
I'd forgotten that I'd used a very similar title for a previous entry (#201 Break the Rules - Main). The phrase must be lodged into my brain somewhere...

    Love how the two birds have almost the exact same posture.

    I think the negative space is more attractive than the silhouettes. It's still an attractive shot. In my tt.

    This is my top pick. It's not easy to show negative space and the environment together, but you have done so brilliantly. The body language of the birds sets the mood and suggests a story - I love your title.

    I don't know why I find these chubby little birds so funny, but I do. I love the way you have placed them in that expanse of ice. The monochrome treatment really highlights the icy surface. Well done!

    Nicely composed. As your title makes clear that subject is the birds and what they are doing, a bit more shadow detail might be desirable.

    Really nice tones in the ice, nicely composed.

    I so want this to be in colour. Nice use of negative space and interesting pattern on the...water or ice?

    Heavy looking birds bumbling across thin ice. Love it!

    I'm trying to figure out what type of birds those are... I like the texture of the ice floor.
