I took this shot underexposed, so I had to get rid of some noise in the sky. neat image on a duplicated layer, blend by exclusion, then invert, then blend with multiply. add black border. resize.

I like the minimal subject a lot (I won't use the word "minimalism" here because I know I don't know the right definition). A little more contrast in the clouds would add some visual interest, but I could see this as one of a multi-panel thing hanging on a wall.

I actually like how you shot this underexposed. Maybe even a half a stop more underexposer to really bring out those textured clouds. Very simple composition but works. I like how the birds are flying into the frame. Wonderful colors. The simple line the birds make are great. I had this one rated much higher than your final. I think the problem with this picture it takes a few minutes to appreciate, it is pretty easy to overlook on a quick glance.

Very nice simple shot. This just give me a feeling of serenity when I look at it. Maybe it's just the soft almost pastel colors in the sky.

I like here how the birds are all in different yet complimentory phases of wing-stretch.

Quiet and understated. Would have been a nice entry for the Minimalism challenge except for all that editing stuff. Sky has a nice flow to it.

The birds are too far away in this photo. Closer would have let you capture more detail in the birds.
