While on photography assignment in Africa, I noticed this wake of vultures flying over the carcass of an African buffalo. The sky was so bright, I decided right away that I wanted to try and create a shot like this, instead of showing the ground and the buffalo as well (although I have some photographs of that scene as well). For me, this was more interesting. 

All I had to do in post, was adjust the 'whites' and the 'highlights' a little to push the sky towards white (while still making sure the image didn't clip).

More work
