Challenge: Perspective V (Advanced Editing V)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D
Lens: Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 EX Aspherical DG for Canon
Location: Southgate, London, UK
Date: Dec 23, 2007
Aperture: f6.3
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/500
Galleries: Urban, Emotive
Date Uploaded: Dec 23, 2007

Tough to get the impact at 640 pixels so it's cropped to retain a bit of detail.

This is a nod to Frank Meadow Sutcliffe, a famous photographer of North Yorkshire who shot so emotively scenes from Whitby and the surrounding area. This viaduct reminded me of the kind of brickwork of that area, the arches forming the many avian homes alluded to in the title.

Brilliant in so many ways. I especially like the pigeons being dark against the sky and light(er) against the arches, and overall the way none of the contrast is wasted.

Awesome, should have scored higher. Really is an amazing piece of classic black and white fine art photography.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

There's something very atmospheric about this image. I'm pleasantly surprised to see it in the top ten, as it's not a very traditional "DPC" image, I think, but I still think it should have scored higher. Will hold a nice place in my favorites.

I LOVE BIRDS. this is really fantastic. really nice post processing too. love the change from left to right!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The birds make this image so much more special than the other structural shots. And the tiny people on the path in the background add a very nice touch to the perspective. I like the b/w conversion too.

Every once in awhile this site features a shot that is so pure, so wonderful that it reminds me why I keep trying, reminds me why photography, in addition to being a nice way to record time, is an art form. This is one of those shots. This both takes my breath away and nearly breaks my heart. 10
