Hi, 1st posting here :sweat:
This pic was taken during the outing to malacca, just some birds flying all over the place
I liked the pic cos it showed some stationary birds clinging to their support, while other birds were flying towards the brightness of freedom....

Come come give comments n help me improve :)

what a wonderful contrast between the three stationary birds and the three birds in flight. one representing the security of man-made comfort and the other the unbridled freedom of nature, one content to stay put next to the lamplight while the other eager to soar towards unexplored heights towards the sun. the viewer can't help but also wish that he can spread his proverbial wings and fly away. excellent photo, hazekang.

nice image but I feel that it is too loose, it would be nicer if the 2 elements were closer together and bigger in the frame or one close and one far away.

also the PSed lens flare is too fake.

Yeah, remove the lens flare. It's more distracting than helping the picture.
Too bad the birds at the lamp post are not big enough to draw more attention to bring in the contrast in meaning.

I like the blueness of the sky.

I think if the elements are closeer together, the emotional feel of freedom might be deminish?

sorry haze, no more to comment as zaren had said it all.

ps, zaren, next time leave alittle bit for others to have chance to comment? ha ha ha.

closer together but using size of subject to give depth and distance
also my imagination tells me if the foreground subject line of sight is directed at the background subject (flying away) it would enhance the feeling of the foreground subject longing of freedom.

what do you think? or is it too late and I need some sleep.:eek:
