A lovely capture of these beautiful birds...I love the tone and the mood it reflects:)

Love the tone, not quite black and white, and I'll take your word that there are 40 birds. ;-) A delightful image.

Ah the quote is so funny and true ! Your illustration has so nice tones : they all go in the same direction, escaping Earth it seems :)
15 Jul 2009 6:21am
The turned one is brilliant
15 Jul 2009 7:31am
So true! We live in one big hell of an ocean! We'd better stick at our tiny piece of earth!
I really like the idea of 39 birds and a half :-)

You know what? I has some problems with ..motif, and possibly the impact. Oh, let's not forget the inadequate story.

@Alessandro: Oh! Oh no! And I tried so hard!! ;-)
Beautiful picture, I like the quote!

Je ne les ai pas compté, mais il doit bien y avoir 40 oiseaux nageant dans l'océan! Belle image!
15 Jul 2009 10:58am
Magnifique tous ces oiseaux crépusculaires! La mer est d'argent et l'ombre bleutée! C'est beau!!

Love the quote. So true..and so perfect paired with this lovely image!!!
15 Jul 2009 12:07pm
you can't trick me.. i didn't count them all.. lol! :D nice shot! :)
15 Jul 2009 12:14pm
@rian: Thanks Rian. I counted several times here until I finally settled on 40. I actually think that Shirin Moosavi is right...there are only 39 and a half. Maybe I need to change my title ;)
I like the two birds on flight. Great tones indeed.
15 Jul 2009 12:30pm
@Luca Bobbiesi: Thank you Luca...those 2 crows in flight are the only reason why I kept this photo :)
Nice shot Sharon, clearly a bird place, and it reminds me that they can also swim ! :-)

May be we called the planet earth because we live above
If we were a civilization on the ocean floor may be we call ocean ...
