    Cliffs 2

    I was eager to catch that bird in the scene ...

    Greg, I like the colors and texture of the first image best, but the perspective and the bird of this one make it a more interesting shot...but I would be tempted to "move" the bird to the other image, and brighten up cliff face of that shot and maybe saturate the stone a bit. Between the two, there just might be a pretty unique composition.

    Ken, That's an idea there, though the more I look at the Cliff 1 pic, the less I like it. It's just too pedestrian. This one has a little more punch and the bird adds a strange twist -- wish this was an old dilapidated building, the bird would add some evil to the scene

    Nice shot! The bird makes the entire screen to life.

    GB the bird makes this one. I wish it were a little further from the cliff. Very nice.

    Thanks Greg. Yeah a little farther away would have been better. It's more discreet this way though, makes you look twice.

    Re: Cliffs 2

    Have you thought of moving the bird about where the first cliff ends - move the bird backwards which would balance the shot better.

    I like the photo.

    I liken this to photographing boats where you need space for the boat to move into.
