I like the composition of the picture especially the great depth of field, where you have the birds in the foreground, the water in the middleground and the trees in the background. Using a F16/F22 allows everything to stay in focus. In this kind of picture that is necessary.The different textures work nicely for you also.The lighting, although effective in some areas, would have created a greater effect if you could have captured more of the birds in the light. They're long legs would have casted great shadows. Because many of the birds are in the shadows you cannot see a lot of detail in their faces. A 9 for composition, an 8 for texture and a 7 for use of light. Overall and 8. JG

nice infrared :) This photo looks very 'strange' and it fits the challenge well. The only possible improvement may be to add just a little more contrast. Great shot :) - 8 - setzler

Really cool shot. Reminds me of early Sci Fi movies that tried to depict strange new worlds with odd coloration. Very cool. I hope you are getting credit for a great concept. 9 Swash (I'm in a really bad DPC mood, can you tell?)

This does really look like something from a fairytail. Excellent capture. I love how the birds are standing by the water. Great work.

All I can say is GREAT PHOTO. I am assuming maybe this is infrared? Hope to see how you did this in your photo comments. 10

Infrared or just B&W/Duotone? They almost look real :-) A slightly different perspective would be interesting for this shot. Good pic.

one of my favorites this week. Definitly gives me an eerie feeling.

To me, tonality is off. I like the shadows. Good luck!

Not a bad shot. I don't know why they are in a strange area. Is this in a zoo? From what I have seen these birds like muddy areas. I would like to see this maybe a little clearer.
