Nature mort *

Next to the big window

When the light is at a certain angle, birds try to fly through our window.
Some die quickly from a broken neck.

Taken on Halloween, posted on election day. Neither date is significant.

Canon PowerShot S400
1/200s f/7.1 at 7.4mm full exif

other sizes: small medium original

One improvement might be a black&white conversion. What are colours good for in this scene? Tomas

There is some noir aesthetic to this shot that I really like.
This is the direction I want to go.
I know you can do something to this shot to improve it but I've no idea how.
Congrats, good shot.

There few effective ways to prevent this, the easiest and less obtrusive is to use several hawk silhoutte stick-on- not that they scare the birds but they break the appearance of the window. Don't know what to say about the image other than it's pretty sad.
