Bird flying over the water with companion bird looking down. (5 years and 293 days ago)
This is a wonderful photo of a bird, but it doesn't really follow the theme
I'm fine with this one, as the author said, 2 birds flying together.
An impressive picture no doubt, but I have to agree with kyri that it doesn't follow the theme. IMHO It hardly looks as if things are ''seen'' from way above
Thanks for the comments. Actually this was taken from the top bridge of a big ship and the bird flew underneath me as I was looking down on it. The water is many meters away as is the bird. I cropped it some to bring the bird closer in. But if I were another bird flying beside this one as many birds were doing at the time, I could easily see myself as a bird. I re read the theme several times and feel that the photograph is on theme. The rule does mention not too far away. All birds do not fly very high nor at night. Many birds remain close to the ground and do not fly higher than the trees out of fear of predators. As always however who ever makes the decision just let me know and I will abide by the moderators choice. No problem from me. It is a fun contest with great photographs.
Moderators? Perish the thought! It's just that the picture gives the impression that the bird or birds is/are almost level with your eyes. Good luck
Now this is a fantastic photograph of a flying bird from the Birdseye View I like how you managed to stop the bird inflight, and that it is extremely well focused. The composition and exposure are great.
In my humble opinion this does fit the rules completely. Good luck.
Thank you and thanks for the fav.

sitting at a restaurant watching the red. (5 years and 295 days ago)
McDonald's? Nice collection of red.
Thanks for the comment. This is actually a new place in town some sort of bar b que spot. Not McDonald's but a fast food place. It did have everything it red and looked good. The food was ok - you know how fast food can be.
And it looks new (very clean.) Have you noticed the red car in the background?
Thanks helenm for the comment. Yes. I saw the car as I was looking thru the view finder but it was moving fast and this is what I got of it. I wish it were a few seconds sooner and the entire car would have been in the photograph. Later when I noticed the image on the computer I also noticed the red roses. Maybe I should have spilled a bit of catsup on the ground to add one more point of red.

LOOKS MORE LIKE A DRAWING ?
Thank you Glockman for your comment. Now that you mention it, it does look like a drawing. I made a SBS showing one of the original photographs and the cloudless sky with the messy background. As I worked with the photograph a bit this is the image that resulted from it through cropping and contrasting. A pretty blue sky or something behind it would have been fine but it also started raining and I have not tried anymore yet.
In the future I will pay more attention to the print through the eyes of others because I did not see the drawing aspect until now. Good observation.
Nice silhouette of your wind chime, the composition is nice, the only nitpick I have is there are a few black spots that could have been edited out.
Rosate spoonbill coming in to land against a blue sky (5 years and 312 days ago)
Beautiful color contrast. You might consider cropping off just a little. Just my opinion.
Thanks Remsphoto. I cropped it a bit more. It starts losing detail with much more crop. I liked the color contrast on this one. I have some good photographs after he landed but did not find them yet. So this is the one I will have to go with for now. Thank you for your comment
