Starling Project Phase 1

Starling Project Phase 1

Photo Information
The starling murmurations in Brighton are well known and quite the spectacle, although not quite what they once were. I haven't really put much effort into photographing them, but this year I have decided to learn how to photograph them - it isn't that easy to get a good picture (very easy to get an average one). The combinations of weather, wind speed and tide conditions really do make an enormous difference to how to photograph them. And then the choice of focal length, depth of filed and shutter speed make for very different scenes. The murmurations should be optimal from now until end Feb so I'll try and get down as often as I can. This is one that I am moderately satisfied with.

Do they rest on the skeleton of the pier?
Wait for that moment and then give your loud scream to the Nature!
They'll fly away drawing nice shapes against sky....Juast wait and try

Shouting at them won't make any difference. Shapes in the sky is one way to photograph them, they are happy to do that without any encouragement.
You can see some of my photos here if you are so inclined

I would be more than "moderately" pleased with this photo.
