Looks like a a setting from a fairy tale. Excellent B/W and great composition and tonal range.

The birds truly make this shot. One with wings out, one with wings raised. I have a sense of tilting to the right, but it might be an optical illusion. Great symbolism here. Nice one. 7

8 - Very nice - the balance of the composition was the first thing I noticed, well done - only nit-pick would be that on closer inspection that smaller 'mass' of branches tilts it out a fraction.. but minor. Nice processing.

Excellent use of a vanishing point. The birds are an extra bonus which adds a bit of life to this.

Great shot. Quite a common subject but this is done really well. Great contrast and the two flying birds make it extra special. In my top five. 9.

Well done railroad shots never get old for me... The birds on the left really make this shot. Lovely.

Without those 2 ducks(?) this wouldn't have been terribly exciting, but they really make it, well done :)

excellent use of duotones to give a dramatic feel - the two birds flying into the scene is just the right bit of extra to really give the shot some extra interest
