[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
The first thing i thought when watching these birds was the film of Alfred Hitchcock "The birds" which dates back 1963.
Maybe many of you remember this thriller.
These birds seemed to have a very threatening gaze and there was a strange atmosphere..very moody.

First of all I'll post as WORKSHOP the photo I started from (I think it's useful on a site like TL).
Crop,resize,turn B/W,contrast,light,shadows,framing.

Regards, Francesco

Beautifully graphical picture, Francesco. Good composition with the lamp coming out of the right side (but you avoided the corner) and curving toward the middle & upward. The birds are very well positioned as well (I know you had not much to do with that but it still work) and the sky adds to the mood. Excellent!

excellent composition francesco :)
i like the dark mood here, you chose a good title for this :)

Great PP on this picture Francesco.

I like the simplicity, yet it is very telling.

Good call on the BW.


Great mood that you have captured here, the black and white and clouds look good.

the 'simplicity' of this photo i like.
but i don't think it's as scary as Hitchcock.
this film kept me nights awake.
ciao, giuseppe.

They are watching us. Keep the helmet on. Moody allright. Simple b/w with nice proportionality. Good work.
