I'll echo Posthumous on this one: stunning, frightening image, which garnered a 9 from me and now the Silver Bear award.

The tilt on the horizon is genius. This was obviously taken in Puerto Rico.

Frightening and beautiful. The title makes an apt connection.

Chaotic and engaging, but I had to spend a few moments deciding.

The title is very important to the pic, isn't it? It would be cool without, but way better with, evokes more feeling and thought.

Hope they have ATC (Air traffic Control) up there! Great shot! From a Church tower?

The most interesting way I think pigeons could be portrayed.. Only truly beautiful in flight... Good job!

Blurry, funny colors, not much contrast, not much detail. I think that either something funny was done durring pp or the exposure was just off and needed fixed better in pp. Could have been a pretty good shot if the focus had been a little better and maybe some more light. Also if you had gotten more pigeons with the sky as the background instead of the underexposed ground.

I do like the tilt of the horizon.

The bird at the bottoms just makes this shot! Nice lighting!

Nice variation of form, light, color in these guys, and the tilt suits this.
