Donald, This is a wonderful photograph!
Do you think a vignette might make the bird in
flight pop a bit?   Posted: 10/02/2021 21:47:10

Good shot of the gull. I would tone down the Topaz sharpening a tad, it looks a little crunchy and I think the shot is probably pretty clear to begin with. Love the wing shape, and might consider adding some blue to the background or was it a really gray day? Just some thoughts!

Your shutter speed was good and he was certainly pretty close since this was taken at 200mm.   Posted: 10/11/2021 13:58:08

Donald, Nice shot of the gull. What kind of gull is this?   Posted: 10/13/2021 11:56:26

Donald, Nice capture in time. I like the composition, you are almost level with the gull while in flight.   Posted: 10/15/2021 21:09:39
