Post-Processing: Untouched - apart from added three more birds from the same shoot.
By adjusting levels and darken.
Cropping - of course...

Although these are more likely being fed in a back garden.

    Not sure it suggests an aroma to me, but I do like the picture.

    I know what you were trying to capture here, because a buzzard visited my neighbor's yard last year when an opossum was struck by a car and died in front of their house. The stench attracted the buzzard within 18 hours. However, the dark foreboding clouds and the ominous looking birds give me a sense of dread more so than a smell.

    This is a really spooky shot, which is great - but it's not conjuring up a smell for me.

    Lots of birds but I don't get much sense of a smell, despite help from the caption. Perhaps if the carrion were visible?

    wow - 8 kites (?) at once or is this a composite...?

scent is not obvious from the picture, it really does need your title to bring it to mind - but the 'smell of death'/ dark tones work well together.

    Oh - that was unintentional, I turned up the saturation to full to try and get some colour in the clouds. Found out there wasn't any and forgot about it without spotting the red bird. Ah well.
Although it does look a little ominous.
Ah - my mistake, I must have had that bird selected at the time. n00b error. Is it a seagull? How did that get in there?

    Ominous for sure! The bird in the middle looks red on my screen...
