Taken at the wildlife refuge near Monte Vista, CO. There were lots of birds around flocking up to fly south for the winter. The Sandhill Cranes let me get very close to take pictures but they were kind of dull - not doing anything busy.

Awesome capture - the chaotic feel here is fabulous, enhanced by the layers of focus and the variety of textures. Neat shot!

Good concept, if not common. Good execution. I like your choice of shutter speed as it helps make the image seem more busy.

Dynamic. Calm, muted colors. I can almost hear the clutter...8

7 - Good shot and coloring. Criticism; not much, perhaps a slightly tighter crop at the bottom/fore but that grass/seedheads(?) add a good element in my opinion so not sure.

Good shot. Very busy picture. The colors are a bit drab but still very nice setting.

Well done. I like the contrast of birds in focus and the out-of-focus background.
