This is "Stradun", main street in Dubrovnik, beautiful city nicknamed the "Pearl of the Adriatic" (and that is really truth)
I was attracted by so many birds crossing the sky, probably migrant ones? :)
For my brother Michal, who celebrates birthday today and likes architectural pictures,
VSETKO NAJLEPSIE MIZU!! :))

Very nice composition, focused mainly on the sky and all those birds.
The BW is very effective here - it created a timesless mood.
I see a photographer looking at you!

I like your black & white city shots - so graphic and strong. This one has a wonderful V-Shape, with the sky filled by these birds flying in all directions. Well done!

Hi Vero! Thanks for sharing this nice photo.. It reminds me of my last summer when I was in Croatia. I also noticed those birds back then. I guess those are the swallows living in the holes in town wall..
Have a nice day,

Strange and well seen, remembers me on the Hitchcock film "the birds". Your photo is a bit dark and in my opinion has to much sky, no?

wow - it looks very strong, like from the horror movie - confusion - that's the rihgt word for expressing that mood... This time it was a great choice - the black and white contrast - it mkes it much more stronger... strange feelings, it's a bit dangerous, a bit like somethnig bad is going to happend in a second, and this is the last chance,last moment before... like beeing on the edge... that's why it's so strong
