Thanks to everyone for the kind words.

I really like the shot too and I didn't think it would score well but I had no idea it would elicit such a positive response from some of the DP challenge artists I respect most!

There's something very Hitchcock about this. The composure and subject, even without the birds are all quite sinister looking!

something compelling about this I can't quite put my finger on. The birds seem like the molecules of which all things are made.

Neat! Would have been much better without the vignette (or with a lighter touch on it.) 6
