Very creative framing. Like the concept. My only thought is that the subjects that you're framing are a wee bit small...I almost didn't notice them at first.

Usually this type of natural lighting ruins an image, but in this case it adds to it, even makes the image. The different grays and lighter blues work well and please the eye, while your subject matter and techinical elements of the shot are also really good.

Your photo is balanced so nicely. You've placed the rocks high enough in the frame so they seem light, like they are floating. They work with the clouds above to create a nice natural frame for the islands and the birds. Simple beauty, great work.

Your frame is larger than your subject

this is an awesoem photo. if you can adjust (increase) the saturation and maybe a little more contrast, i'd buy a print! (of course thats my taste and opinion, its still a good shot) ALSO please SHARE the information and shot setup as well as location.

The more I look at this shot, the more I like it. I just has a certain....serenity...to it. Great shot, worthy of a good rank in this challenge.

This is a really great picture! The minimalism in it really makes it and the only thing I might suggest would be a little closer crop on the bottom.

Neat and minimalist, a good candidate for black and white and a potential wall hanger=10

thank you for sharing this- it's absolutely beautiful. As far as framing- not sure if the little birds pull me as the subject.

Very clean, simple picture. Almost Zen.... and I didn't spot the birds till I'd stared at it for a couple of minutes. Very nice capture. Very soothing and relaxing. Would make a really nice print.

Excellent work and surely fits the challenge. I hope this does well.
A slight clockwise rotation might help. -9

This is awesome and beautifully minimalistic. I would have cropped of some more of the bottom but other than that, wonderful. Good luck!
