Wow... this is really a gorgeous shot. I love crows and ravens for some reason, I always have. there's just something so serious about them, and that perfect silhouette, I can't really put my finger on it.

No one needs to apologize for showing some sweet art, especially sweet photography art.

Did the crows come out that solid black color when you took the shot or did you photoshop the photo? :3

Sorry to correct you, but they're ravens, not crows. Unless you are talking of another photo, then I apologize.

i made it into a b&w photo in ps (there was a lot of ugly trash on the ground, it was taken at a gas station lol

its pretty close to the original (top) but i hadn't thought of lightening it! i upped the exposure (bottom) and i love the detail that pops out :D

thanks for the idea <3
