Nice time to take this shot. Love the background. I think I would have foregone using the flash on this one. It illuminates a few of the birds and then makes them look really blurry. Silhouetting them would have worked better, but that is just my opinion.

The spectacular sky and seascape turn what might be a fairly ordinary picture of birds in flight into a work of art.

the horizon seems a little bit crooked, distracts from the photo, IMO.

What is that big white hole from on the right? That's really strange.

This photo also reminds me of Hitchcock's film, The Birds. Nice lighting, it works well. I especially like the bird in the middle left, it looks like it is just hanging there. The white blotch between the birds on the right is a little distracting tho.

Just like a scene from Hitchcock's "The Birds". Run everybody. Love the different wing strokes in the birds. Help to give a great sense of motion and flight. The great sunset and the colors help to push the birds out of the pictue. Beautiful shot.

You really did catch a nice scene. Not crazy for the left side crop but this is not too bad. It's sure on the topic of the challenge...nice job.
