What a truly magical photo... my top pick from this challenge. I love the sharp clarity of the birds in the air compared to the mist-obscured details of those perched on the pillars. The foreground water detail is also great.

Great looking shot. Love the mood and processing. Only nitpick, perhaps another take with a different wave break at the bottom?

This is sooo AWESOME! I LOVE photos like this. It's absolutely perfect!

wistful, it makes me feel think of a dream. The fog getting rid of the horizon makes it seem like a painting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great tonal range and amazing composition. This is so free-flowing and natural, yet ominous and emotive - even peaceful. Wonderful work.

I love this...I love the birds perched on the pylons...very good

terrific shot!

I LOVE THAT. I recognize that place from other photos but don't remember where it is. The mix of the birds' shapes and the vertical pilons. WOW and the tones. This is spectacular. Coming back. This really is my fav of the challenge (next to a couple I saw prior so I can't vote). Bravo 10

Superb, and perfect B&W;
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the zen-like feel of the birds in in the distance and how the fog wraps around them and the waves moving towards me. The birds in flight are cool but for me I could do without them or at least less of them. Excellent shot nonetheless.

08/04/2008 05:57:45 PM
Very atmospheric - I wonder if it would be better in colour.
08/04/2008 04:56:54 PM
Lovely B&W and I really like all the different layers of this.

I like the mood in this (probably the result of the lighting, the fog, the composition and the processing), but I'm not voting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

great image!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow! I like. Nice tones across the frame. I like the pattern of piles and the way it works against the gulls. Nice lines in the sky working with the surf and waves. This yours Bear??? LOL Very nice.

Oh, cool. The mist and silouettes are wonderful. I'll be surprised if this does not score very high.
