another one to toss onto the pile of the under-appreciated...this one definitely takes more than a glance, but is so worth it when one bothers.

Well ... I should have guessed it was you Aznym! So much of your sublime work lives uncomfortably at DPC, like using a good malt whiskey to make a scotch & coke; sacrilege!

This is reminiscent of "The Birds," Alfred Hitchcock's imfamous movie. I like the use of sepia.

The power lines are a little distracting. Otherwise an interesting shot.

This is an exquisitely paradoxical image; few elements, simply composed, and executed (especially in post-processing) with restraint. Paradoxical because these modest ingredients nevertheless result in an image loaded with interest and intellectual challenge for the viewer prepared to make the effort. Those not so prepared will, alas, satisfy themselves with some carping about the wires.

very good capture, tones and contrast---like it alot--very unusual dark, heavy cloud tones really adds to this.

I don't quite see the realtion of your title to the photo, but frankly, titles don't count one way or the other for me - it's the photo itself. I like the silhouetted birds. The wire lines...I'm not sure if they distract or add the needed balance to keep this from being an average photo. I'll come back for a second look.

Think I would have used the top half of the photo and cropped out the wires.

Great shot. I could wait around all day and never get the chance for a shot like that.

My first thought was that the power lines ruined this shot. But after thinking about it a bit, they're not that bad. The birds and clouds are great together.
