Hey there from the Critique Club

Nice idea, and very interesting sky. I think that this one suffered because of the large amount of negative space. I do like the simple composition you accomplished, but the bird is a bit too small to hold the viewer's interest. As mentioned already, a bit more definition in the sky would help out. Keep in mind that voters look at each photo for only a short amount of time. Crisp clarity and vibrant colors help put a great deal in pulling higher scores. Nice choice and well seen. I think that this one would have done much better in a negative space type of challenge. Well sen.

In Poland we say "One swallow does not make a Spring". Very, very nice.

Nice clouds and capture, although the overall simplicity lacks a little visual beauty to grasp me. Still, good effort and shot!

Nice concept - It would be nicer to see more definition in the blue-gray clouds.

Image is quite intersting and makes good yopur caption, I think you'll find that it's probably a swift or housemartin though, tail isn't sharp enough
