About the Image(s)

I was in the Galapagos May 2019 on a photo tour when I took this image. If you have been at the Galapagos, then you know the restrictions. One is you must be off the islands at dusk. We had 2 guides that bent the rules a little. On the last day, we stayed on this island just after sunset. My settings were 1/125 sec at f/20, ISO 200. I was shooting for a star burst at f/20 but it did not happen. I suspect the clouds on the horizon interfered with this plan.”

Yeah, the sun is too hazy for a sunburst :-( I do like the silhouettes. What if you cropped right down the middle? You almost have two images here. The single bird on the right half (my preferred) and the two birds on the left. The two on the left would be great except I think the bright spot of the sun would detract.   Posted: 09/21/2020 10:59:10

I like Alan's suggested crop and I like the concept of the silhouetted view. For me, the heads in the other two silhouettes seem to lack separation from the horizon. Although it is there, it's hard to see in this dark rendition.
Depending how far you wanted to go, I suppose you could remove the to birds on the left and preserve the sunset view. Then of course it's a different image and maybe
not what you want.   Posted: 09/21/2020 21:56:41
