If I had voted, it would've been a 10 with no hesitation. I feel like I'm flying just looking at this. Wonderful!

Wow! The crisp silhouettes of the birds, the backlighting through their wings and the soft clouds in the background come together perfectly. Wow...adding to favs!

I don't often have time to vote on the challenges but I'm glad I clicked on your profile to see what you'd been up to. This is a beautiful shot. The transluscent quality of the birds' wings sets this apart from the average wildlife image.

Your work is so appealing to me. I can never seem to get these sorts of abstracts. Wonderful.

Beautiful shot.. If not the ribbon then at least the top ten worthy pic. I have just a slight issue with the processing of the wing of the bird at the bottom right. Oh my, I re-read the sentence.. I'm getting a bit creepy with the things I notice. I have a feeling that imperfection got the votes a bit down. But oh well..still a great shot.

I would have been tempted to ADD grain to this for an artistic look. Probably wouldn't have scored well however. ;^) As is, there is a little noise in the sky although it looks like you've applied some noise reduction to it already. The birds are WAY cool. Love the angle. You've stopped the motion pretty well. Would be a stronger image if the birds were a little sharper...the image overall seems soft. JMO of course. ;^) Good luck in the challenge.
