Thread: A Birdcam View

    Default A Birdcam View



    I looked out my window one morning and saw a crowd gathering to celebrate the re-opening of an indian temple. I thought the view was rather happy, amusing yet interesting enough to share with all. It's not something you'd see everyday unless you are a bird of course. All opinions are welcome. Cheers and have a brilliant day everyone.

    good stuff - but frankly there is nothing to go "wow" about this picture, while everything is quite nicely done, and i quite like the perspective, it is mainly interesting precisely because of the perspective and the perspective alone.

    did you take other photographs where isolated groups of people have something more interesting, i.e. everyone save one person wearing the same colour, etc.

    this would work well as a part of a whole series, but alone, not so.

    Actually, no need all to look up.. if just one of them looked up.. and nicely in one of the thirds area, this pic will be even powerful. But I still like it just the way it is now.

    This photograph works simply on perspective alone. While yes it is a shot of a rarely-seen angle, there is nothing that excites me and sucks me into the photo.

    What I would have done is simply to make some noise so that they would look up. That shot would have been priceless.

    Hey thanks everyone for the great tips. Yeah I should have made some kinda noise or shouted so that all would suddenly look up and if I shot hi speed, I might have captured different people lookin up at different times, then pick a fav.

    since its your window, u will have chance to re-shoot the scene, maybe during some festive gathering.

    can try to include part of the temple (as landmark and reference point), then use slow shutter to blur the crowd.
