I think my favorite thing here is how you didn't have the need to show the whole birds. A hell of a lot of other people (myself included) would have felt the need to include an entire bird just to avoid cutting stuff out.

And while you did compensate for that with the title, one can tell anyway. The objects were identifiable as objects, so I really LOVE that you simply eliminated the parts which didn't contribute to the image.

That really awesome stuff going on in the water combined with the legs and a hint of body is really all that this picture needs. It's enough to flesh out the scene and give a story to it, and showing any more stuff at the top might have messed with the composition and balance. Great job for having the balls to make a flamingo picture that in actuality shows very little of the flamingos.

Thank you all for your comments.

To me, the point that Clean Gene brings up is one of the most important points in this shot: the really tiny amount of identifiable objects. Yet, they allow us all to imagine the rest of the scene and I think this is a really neat thing, for it makes everyone see his own breed of flamingos. :) I did experiment with various degrees of abstraction and this one was my personal winner.

cheers
