    critiques and comments welcome (duh)! With this image i was trying to express oppression, and a little bit of loneliness (i guess a little bit of terror as well, most of that was covered through the oppression bit though). It's hard to explain what i was going for (as it usually is ). I notice that the subject is a little centered. This wasnt EXACTLY what i was hoping for, with the tree, when i find the right tree i'll post something similar. as you can see, quite a bit of photoshop, try not to let that kill it though, if you can :)

    As a sucker for b/w, I kinda prefer the p/s color version of this one though I still think the b/w is nice. I think both show a nice composition and form. I really like the silhouette quality of both. Good job. (not a big fan of the red border around the first one though)

    the black and red here for me :) a bit spooky though but neat :) I don't think it is too centered. I like it. The tree is more on the right, while the left part is empty. I like it

    I like both and think you did an excellent choice in PS!!! I'm not sure which I prefer, although I like the positioning of birds better in the second, but I really like what you've done with each :) You're doing a lovely job lately with your shots, keep it up :)

    I like both, although #1 shows more definition of the sillhouetted birds, i think the conversion does a lot for the mood, nice work.

    Beautiful capture and the presentation has dramatic impact in both versions.

    Well done.

    I like what you did with both versions. Because I have absolutely NO ps experience (poor college kid shooting film) I was wondering if you could post the original so I could have a look at it. The only question I have is HOW DID YOU DO IT?
