Incredible...

This is a great image. You also stand out since it's an excellent example of a cpativating photo using pastel colors, rather than bold colors.

Thanks for all your comments. I must say I didn't expect this photo to do all that well as I think the colours are quite washed out. The composition pleased me though. As my first entry since July I am happy! The birds are flamingos in Lake Nakuru in Kenya. I was there attending a workshop on land problems and grabbed a couple of hours to visit the National Park. All is not well though and the environment is under threat. Read a recent press story here.

Utterly amazing amount of flamingoes!

more contrast would have been nice
11/04/2004 05:00:23 PM
Wow! Are those flamingos? I find this shot extremely interesting. You can sit back and see a great abstract with very nice "S" curves, great texture and wonderful colors, and then lean in and see the reality or detail of water, birds and shoreline. Very creative. Awesome, one of my favs for sure.

Thats strange for sure and beautiful... just you overdosed with brightness bit too much.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/03/2004 02:36:45 PM
great shot, but a little washed out
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/03/2004 12:55:48 PM
i like it -- very interesting ... wish the color could have a bit more saturation, but that could be due to time-of-day you were shooting (birds flock on their own schedule, unfortauntely) or your glass .....

Neat photo and colors.
11/03/2004 11:06:15 AM
i have seen these birds before, they are very strange. nicly photographed looks almost like paint smeared on a canvas. 8

That is QUITE amazing, but without your title I'd have had no idea - perhaps algae. I feel the photo needs to strongly meet the challenge without the help of the title. 4
