hey, this is very nice! i do sense some romantic feelings in the air amongst the birds! yes, though they are looking at different directions, but there seems to have some "lao fu lao qi" kinda thing between them!

fantastic shot!
it might be better if the pole/column they are on is slightly straigher, but then again, very nice composition.

Did you do any PS?

Thanks for the kind comments. I like this shot also.

Intox: It was taken during sunset where there are myriad shades of yellow,red and orange. However, I have to do some adjustment on the curves to bring out the vibrancy of the warmth.

Cheers..

I think the slant in the column is quite charming. :)

Thanks again for all the praises, I'm flattered :)

Shot was taken at Changi Boardwalk, and the birds are always there, standing on the kelong stilts. Black little birds with red eyes, no idea what they are.

Have a lovely year,
Cheers..

I have to admit that this is sort of a snaphot :embrass: But then again, I have in the past tried to get the silhouette of the birds there before but to no avail because my max zoom was only 55mm at that time. As for this shot, my main intention was to photograph the sunset that day with wide angle. Then I remembered suddenly what I had failed to do so the last time. Changed my lens to 70-300 and shot a few while waiting for the sun to go lower.

Lucky shot, yup, I guessed so. But for your interest, this can be done with planning ahead too. The birds will always be there, that's what I observed. Be it morning or evening. So on a good day, anyone can just walk up there and take their so called "planned and well-executed shots", if you know what I mean.

However, personally, I feel that be it a planned shot or a snapshot, as long as it can evoke feelings in you, it is a good shot, a memorable depiction, story ...
