Pastors Spirits

Pastors Spirits
Commotion - Is what happens when a flock of Rosy Starlings (Pastor roseus) do their acrobatics. Its a "spirit" they all have.
To emphasize the ghostly feel of the image, I coined 'Pastors Spirits' to be the name.

Wow stunning visual. I am always amazed by the sheer variety of jaw dropping images this lone subject has created. Each image of the Starlings seems to have a different look and feel and there seems to be no shortage of creativity when one is among this fabulous cacophony!

Lovely presentation here!

I think Sriharsha already said I wanted to. For now, let me enjoy the image... Make a large print Sankett ! Where was this made ? Jamnagar ?

Thank you Sriharsha and Ganesh. Yes, this was made in Jamnagar. I could not help myself stop clicking.. very rightly said, lots of shortage of stunning displays that these birds create. Just to share, one must not miss the first flight these flocks take in the morning...they leave a breathtaking gust of wind right below them.
I have the same thoughts of having a canvas print for this...

Wonderful display! I am just wondering how it would have looked if presented as a high-key image! Any thoughts?

well I had tried for high key, some details in the motion blur elements seemed to dissappear then...I could only present ghostly commotion this way.
