detailsI shot this from the car one evening - on my way home from work :) I used flash to up the shutter speed, but this scene was too far away to be "disturbed" by the flashlight.

Christel, This is really pretty. The bird is a real winner for this picture. Color of sky is nice too. You did everything right in my eyes.

Tech Details Christel? I have never been able to get a silhouetted bird-in-flight shot like this before so I'd love to know what you used. Maybe I should shoot from my car more often ;) A crop off the top might help the comp. a bit and if you were concerned about the black on the's fine, no flash was necessary IMO. (7)

Christel, That's not a buzzard is it? Seriously, I can learn from you. Thanks for discribing the bit about the flash. You have a lovely drive home. vote 8.5

Clever use of flash Christel. The bird (a stork?) makes the shot rising it from 'yet another boring sunset' category to a very interesting romantic composition. 8

Thanks for the comments :)
Tech details - I didn´t write them down because I don´t remember, but the photo was underexposed - there was actually much more light than can be seen here. I believe that the easiest way to get silhouette shots is to go for shutter priority and set the speed high enough to underexpose the picture. I only have aperture control though, so I had to do it this way. I´m not at all worried about the lack of flashlight detail, because I didn´t want any. The flash was on lowest settings. The bird is a heron, Ardea cinerea. I don´t know what this species is called in English, but it´s about 1 meter tall and probably the largest indeginous bird in Denmark. Quite common too.

Good catch. The bird and tree work well isolated but together. (8)

This is a beautiful well captured shot, Christel! Maybe a slight crop off of the top, but other than that, fantastic.(9)
