Hello Ruedi:

Greetings from the Critique Club...

(I see you have met your goal of having some top ten finishes. I also noticed that you have received many comments but not made any)

This is an excellent panning shot with the three main subjects in crisp focus. The fact that their wings are in three different stages adds interest. You have given them some negative space on the right to fly into and that adds a good feel to the composition. This is a technically well-executed shot.

I was puzzled by the low number of comments for a "better than average" scoring shot. I think that while this is fine shot, there is not an aspect of the shot that pulls me in - not an aspect that stands out. This may have to do with the flat lighting or that the subjects are a bit far away from me to get a sense of them.

Please pm me if you have any questions or comments.

Good motion stop. I like the little red feet on the left hand bird! I like the details you got on the wings. Perhaps darkenning the backgound a bit would make these pigeons pop out even more. The composition with all that grass is a bit dull, perhaps a tighter crop to focus attention on the birds more?
