Flight of Envy

Posted by
Nitin (Mayenne, France) on 14 March 2010 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Walking along the Piazza San Marco in Venice where you see these birds flying all around you it's not easy to follow their path or look where they are heading. After trying several shots I managed to get one and what a shot it was. Something striking and captivating about the bird here - the look in the eye - like dedication or focus. Spreading its wings all across and flying slightly tilted it was such a beautiful sight!

Well captured. The straight line of the left building in contrast to the other enhances the action of the flight

A daring and original composition. The seagull's wings cut the lines well marked in column (?). The weight of it balances the left piece of building that is right (mine) Well seen!
I have visited your portfolio and I've seen some great images ... Congratulations! Adela

nice one! while most people attempt to capture a background of sky and clouds while a bird is in flight, you played with architecture to create a context. interesting colours, composition.

Hi! That's wonderful. Especially because of the proximity of the buildings. We expect to see kind of detail against a sky. It gives it all the more the feeling of nearness.

Thanks for the comments all. What I fail to express in words below my pictures you all make up for it. It happens with me somethings I find something so perfect and blissful but I cannot explain it and I write something else just to dodge it. Here you all perfectly complemented my lack of words. THanks again.
