The Bird wouldn't fly away so I may have bumped the pole...

This shot by 21_N.gif xion is one of my favorites on this site and taught me to look up. Its not even in the same league as his, but a small tribute nonetheless.

Very ominous and forbidding.......it almost looks malevolent like it's going to attack the bird. I like this work you're doing with the B&W.

Well done, Joe! I like how you caught the bird midair.

This one grabbed my attention for some reason :)

Thank you.

It's really good and surely not in a lower league. I am really glad that my shot was of good use to you. It's a nice feeling. It's even strange looking at this one and seeing the thumbnail in the details. It's similar yet beautiful and exciting in a different way. Mine was shot like this and rotated 90° CW. I got lucky with that one.

Looking at the lights, I feel like they are turning like a propeller and the bird is trying to escape, or it might keep going round and round.

I like the bird better than the plane, then again they both server different purposes inside the frames.

Keep looking and keep shooting.

Cheers

A great shot, and I like it differently from Xion's; his is of the convergence of two pretty amazing things (the spire and a jet -- sorry, I still think flying is an amazing thing); yours is of the divergence of two ordinary things. Both are striking.

Wow, super perspective! I was going to say lucky you to have caught the bird flying but I see you planned it that way, smarty!
