I like your shot, there is so much happening and wow alot of cranes. To enhance the shot I would have cropped the bottom of the shot to remove the grass in the foreground as there is nothing there and is a little distracting from the main area of the image.

Lovely and dramatic image of the migrating cranes. keep up and TFS!!
This is a very interesting post. I think I have never seen so many cranes at the same time on the same picture. This is well done with good POV and details. Movements are well frozen and this is a good composition. There is just something a little weird about this sky but I can't tell exactly what it is... Well done anyway. Thanks,

Very nice presentation of the crane at flight - the compression effect by the long focal length help to create the feeling of mass and difference in dynamic of the subjects (ground or air).

I like this foto, and the cranes. In Romania the cranes are fairly rare. Probably, the Hulah Valley is a rich region in birds, especially in periods of migrations.
Best Regards. Cezar T.

Thanks for dropping by, Shahar. I value your comments on my picture.
I like you candid shot of hundreds of cranes flying together. Your intensive note too adds a lot to the appreciation of your well-managed picture.
Thanks and take care.

Beautiful shot. You make me jealous. There is a plece near me where 20,000 to 25,000 cranes gather every fall, and I have never been able to get a shot like this. Ours scatter to feed during the day and only begin to congregate at dusk.
I started to suggest that a more dramatic sky might help this photo, but on second thought, I think that woudl draw interest away from the birds. I like it as it is. However, I do find my eye drawn to the large expanse of grass. You might consider cropping off a little of the bottom.
