It would have been an awesome photo without the flight of birds crossing the sun but with them it goes up another level again! Amazing capture!

Ivan you definitely have the eye the catches the true beauty of nature. I am just amazed at the sunset, the flock of birds, the timing of photo that has been taken is truly heart stopping.
I am slowly learning what it means to be photographer and your photos are truly inspiring.

So good it is almost sickening.
How is it so crisp?! What wizardry do you perform in photomatix / photoshop?
Have you made any tutorials or can you recommend any?
Amazing work.

Ну как, там залив 30 км и почти везде на побережье растут деревья. В горах дерево падает в реку, его выносит потом в море.

огромные мертвые деревья.. сюрреалистично почти.

ну все равно, молодец, что увидел в этом не просто nice pic, а и концепцию :P
У меня возникло впечатление, что это как разрушенные отношения. Эти деревья пустые, уставшие, мертвые, нет у них ни корней уже , ни листьев.. Но главное, все также шумит море, летят птицы, светит теплое солнце..
вообщем эта фота о чем-то рассказывает, а это в искусстве очень важно :)

Again great composition, and saturation awesome ;). What was the camera setting (shuterspeed, whitebalance, apeture) and did you use any filters?
