November 2022 Photo Quest: Birds in Flight

Warm up for some photographic heavy lifting: get the long lenses, raise the shutter speed and ISO! Our November 2022 Photo Quest theme is: Birds in Flight.

Of course you don’t HAVE to make a photo with a long lens and fast shutter speed: pelicans gliding over the waves, or a swarm of birds taking off can be photographed with standard zoom lenses just as well — and a slower shutter speed while panning (think 1/10 second or so) and following a flock of birds might render a dreamy, even otherworldly photo if you get it right. Be creative! 🙂 We look forward to your submissions.


  • MAKE A NEW PHOTOS for the quest – no digging in the archives!
  • Your photo MUST be made in the month of November 2022
  • Color, black & white, DSLR, mirrorless, phone… doesn’t matter
  • Send high-res JPEG files, good quality, sRGB color space
  • No digital art/compositing
  • Deadline: November 30, 2022

Before you submit your photo: please take a look at our guide on file names, format, titles, metadata. We expect technically solid photography without obvious flaws and distractions: have fun, but honestly self-evaluate. Take pride in your work!

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

Our monthly Photo Quest is a members-only photographic scavenger hunt. Current members will receive a submission link in their email with the theme announcement, at the beginning of each month. Membership for 2023 will open in December.
