Heckle and Jeckle by Moonbeam13 Heckle and Jeckle by Moonbeam13
This one caught my interest initially because of its symetry which made it very aesthetically pleasing to my eye. Then it brought back memories of old Heckle and Jeckle cartoons, which inevitably threw me right back into fond childhood memories.. who knew these two birds could do so much for me.

Very beautiful! Interesting to look at 'cause you find new ways of looking at it, if that makes any sense.
Great job, keep it up. :)

Simple, powerful work. It's perhaps not uncommon to see shots similar to this, but few are as extreme in their contrast or simplicity. It's photography reduced to it's simplest elements of line and form and shade, which leaves you with very little to work with.

The symmetry is obviously a key feature because there's so little else for us to grasp, but you've used other little tricks too - slightly off-center, at an angle - to keep it fresh. The power lines are a great unifying feature for the birds, and there's subtle guiding of the viewer to the thicker, top wire.

Personally, I'd actually prefer a bit more negative space at the top, perhaps enough for the Guideline of Thirds vertically (though that may be too much), but I think it's in a good position horizontally - if you shift it left or right, it'll feel unbalanced and in need of text or soemthing to plug the gap.


I'm trying so hard to think of more stuff to say, but there's only 4 things in the photo, and 2 of them are duplicates... lol :disbelief: ...so perhaps I should just round off instead. The two harsh opposites make for a very calm piece, almost vectorised if it weren't so untidy and organic, and it's an atmosphere that's carried on by the pose - both staring off separately, pondering, contemplating. Perhaps all the birds on power lines are really just philosophising.
