Thank you for all your wonderful comments which to me is the most important thing really. This shot is very special to me, especially considering the time I spent to study the birds and how I timed them when I took this shot. I was standing on the Scaligero Bridge while I took this shot.

Almost CGI rendition. Pleasant though, I like the haze and the capture. Quite effectively realistic, in reality. 8

Absolutely amazing shot. Really, it's breathtaking. Almost like a painting.
Love the flock of birds, the PP that was involved, the lighting, the detail... everything about it speaks of classical feel. Great shot. Very well done!
And the title couldn't be better! 10

I think the light and the lines is what does it for me in this shot. One of my few 9 point scores.

I love the soft tones in this...a nice change from so much super-saturation!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Likely Top 10, beautiful PP up to Top 3, could even win it!

This is a really cool shot, however I would have used the rules to my advantage and gotten rid of the little island in the water - then it would have been a 10 :)
