    The birds are not sharp. Does that make them distracting? I have the exact same shot without them but I feel like there's too much empty space. When I saw them coming I tried to get them in but I guess there wasn't quite enough light.

    i dont think the birds are distracting...i think it's a great shot with the birds but if they were sharper it would make it better, but the shot is excellent!!! i also like that the birds are in symmetry with each other!! great shot!! :thumbup:

    Thats awesome Woodsac! :thumbup:

    Great how you've put the Moon in so much "Space" :lol:

    The birds really add to it and the blurry wings give them a sense of motion!

    Good stuff!:D

    This scene has a soothing feel to it. I like it very much. :)

    BTW: I'm sure you already know this, but I'll offer it anyway. You could just "lasso" the birds and selectively sharpen them without altering the rest of the picture.

    I know I can, but I hadn't thought about it Bruce. I'll give it a go. Thanks.

    Awesome shot. At least at this resolution the blur isn't too distracting. It's of course not ideal, but it doesn't prevent it from still being a great shot.

    It's a beautiful shot - very soothing, I agree. The angle of the birds in flight is just too lovely and natural to ever be considered distracting in the shot. Love it!! :)

    I find this amazing as it is, and to my mind the birds add to the photo, make it more unique than just a photo of the sunlit mountains and the moon in a still somewhat bright sky would have been. And I don't mind they are blurred, since they are MOVING. If they didn't, they'd fall off. Who can want that ;).
    Photos of the moon ... I LOVE them! Almost as much as if they were green ... [​IMG] ;)

    great shot, woodsac.... i love the whole feel to it... the birds make it, gives your eye more depth...you can see the "space" with them flying thru...

    the color of the mountian/hill is just awesome.....

    and the lay of the clouds makes this look like it was painted..
