I absolutely love this Dominic!!!
Big Congrats on the recognition!! Very well deserved!

May 27, 2008

My reaction was 'Oh Wow' as the photograph downloaded. A wondrous image. The 'restrictions' of the monochrome image emphasises the interplay of shape and tone and texture and reaches back to the days when we poured over trays of chemistry ... and emerged from the darkroom after an afternoon's work with one triumphant image. I just want to keep looking at it. #5982839

Leslie Carson Wolfe level-classic May 27, 2008

"Very atmospheric, sinister even"

A very disturbing image.


Carolyn M. DAlessandro May 27, 2008

WOW!! This is by far the most unusual catch all of this at one time is awesome...the mist,the fence, the birds,tones,something out of the "Birds"(movie)... Congratulations is in order for many things.... all of it is OUTSTANDING!! #5982910

kk #5983288

Karolyn Munson May 27, 2008

Dominic, this is absolutely amazing. Did you really manage to capture this all at once, or did you have to add the birds in? I just love the moody feeling created here with the backlighting and the wonderful choice of monochromatic color somewhere between b&w and sepia.

Great job! #5983316

Jean E. Hildebrant May 27, 2008

Ditto to all the above! A wonderful image! I especially love the design elements of it. The vertical lines of the trees repeated in the fence and the shapes of the birds, just works wonderfully. It has the whole package, hope it goes far! #5983539

Nancy Donnell May 27, 2008

Wow, Dominic, What can I say that hasn't been said. If you added the birds and made up the scene, WoW! If you came upon it that way, still WOW.
The softer background pops the birds, and adds a great feel. Sepia was a perfect choice. Congrats on this POTD!
