Pigeons sem to like this Weeping Beech tree at the Botanic Gardens. Converted to contrasty b/w at expense of some grain (which I quite like anyway).

I like the image but I'm not sure about the birds - are they vultures? Bizarre?

Yes! I see it! I don't know if I see more than one mourer, but I defintely see one. Very cool and definitely bizzarre. Love the lighting and the shade of the sky. Those clouds were perfect for this shot!

This certainly strays the "dpc formula", so it gets extra points for that alone :) I like the dead space on top, the shape of the tree is awesome, and the birds complete the image.

The only thing I don't like is the composition seems just a bit off. I'd like to see a little more of the tree on the bottom and it might be better centered a little more ... but maybe not.

great job ... 9

I like these trees with hanging branches... Good colors. I would place tree in other corner of picture.
