I was lucky to capture this image on a recent evening walk. I stopped to take a photo of birds roosting on a communications tower downtown. As I raised the camera to compose the photo, the sound of a loud motorcycle cracked through the air and startled the birds. I was lucky enough to snap a photo as they were taking flight. The resulting images are below, one in B&W and the other in color.
I like the contrast of the fixed tower against the blurred motion of the birds as they take flight.
I’m not sure which version I like the most, I typically prefer black & white images, and I think that’s were I’m leaning here as well. What do you guys think? – MDL
