Congratulations. Beautiful job in showing the little dark feathers on the neck. I feel like flying away with them.

Thanks everyone for the positive thoughts.
Here's an "out-take" of the shoot that day ... this was my alternate choice for this challenge.

I like the second bird, add's some depth. Good job in a natural setting

I think I would have preferred a higher shutter speed with a higher ISO (looks like the lens was wide open already).

Nice duplicity with the two birds. I like the floating sense it gives the viewer. Well detailed. Great detail and focus on the larger bird's head.

Great capture, such a hard shot to capture but you have done it perfectly, I love the fact that the deoth of field has kept the focus on the front bird. One of my favorites in this challenge. 10

Jonathan Livingston Seagull! Excellent shot!

I wish it was a little sharper, otherwise great shot.

8 - Whilst no expert on 'highlight control' re the Challenge, seems to me you have done very well to not 'blow' any surface. I had to 'double check' with this shot, so similar to the 'other'. Criticism; not much, if possible (depending how many shots/angles you got), perhaps a tighter crop, especially with just one bird, and being able to 'zoom in' on especially the tailfeathers and also the head, may have made this an even better (albeit different) shot in my opinion.

Very nice! Love the open wing span here and the position on the picture. Good Job!

Very nice! I love the gliding feeling the image has. Certainly meets the challenge and the lighting/composition is very good. Looks like you picked up some good details in the wings/feathers too. Well done. I gave a 6.

nice capture.. the bird in the background gives a nice feeling of depth..

One of my favourites, but the main subject is a little out of focus on my monitor. Not an easy shot to achieve though. Well done.
