About the Image(s)

Here's another photo of my New Year holidays. On the beach I was observing gulls. One was on the rock near the sea. The other rushed there. I've just pressed the shutter with motor drive and one of images is quite interesting.

Nikon P950, built in lens at 350mm, ISO 100, F5, 1/640s Shutter priority, handheld. Processing: crop, contrast improvement with levels and curves, in Photoshop Elements, noise reduction with Nik Dfine2 and sharpening with Nik Sharpener.

Looking at the original I had no idea of what you had shot. Very good post processing allowing us to see the action between two birds in a split second as they interact with each other.   Posted: 02/16/2021 21:28:34

Great post processing. You have improved the original a lot in post processing. The lighting, sharpness and composition look good in the final image. Your cropping is excellent. Nice work.   Posted: 02/20/2021 00:34:30

Amazingly good job of bringing out the image. In lightroom I reduced noise and brought up shadows for some fine tuning.   Posted: 02/20/2021 11:57:06

Great that you got the gulls quarreling. I could almost tell what they are saying. Good "action" shot. I would lighten the shadows in the black rocks to the left of the gulls, and sharpen the gulls' wings one more time.   Posted: 02/20/2021 15:31:28
