Good lack of DOF beyond, nice sharp gull in front. Good color, nice job. - Not sure I like this type of crop.

Great picture! Nice composition and lighting!

Terrific shot! There is really nothing here that I would "pick on" - I like the shot a lot, the composition works beautifully, but it lacks that "something" unexpected, unusual, or impactful that would take it to a "10". 9

Lucky you to capture this, great shot! The subject bird's colors and detail is outstanding.

Great moment captured. Like that he's looking at the camera as well. Good colors and use of DOF. 8 -danny

Great use of DOF, especially the birds in the background. Wonderfully captured pose by your main subject. Great image. Slightly oversharpened with hallowing in the rightmost tail feathers.

Nice detail in the bird very clear and fits the challenge well
02/11/2004 10:49:18 PM
beautiful colors and bird..nice dof

Nice shot, good color. Might've been neat to try focusing on second gull to see if near and far birds would've been out of focus.

Well-composed, nice work on the shallow dof.
02/11/2004 10:02:23 AM
Very smooth shot. Good use of the technique and a crisply focused subject.

I'm being hypercritical here, but I suppose the bird is just a bit boring. If it was taking off or landing it would add some interest and that special x-factor.

Wonderful use of DOF and leading lines. The rich color and perfect lighting make this awesome !
02/10/2004 09:43:23 PM
Yes this works well. :-) Makes me smile. I feel a bit closed in though..... maybe a not-so-tight crop would make the picture breathe a bit.... stil a big 8 from me!
02/10/2004 11:05:25 AM
DOF leads to a nicely evocative composition. Seems just slightly off balance to the left, but still a nice photo. 8

Very sharp good timing on getting the shot while the bird was looking at you. (8)
02/09/2004 07:04:55 PM
yep - its the feet... top choice
02/09/2004 06:43:57 PM
Great line-up! This one really stands out!
02/09/2004 04:15:08 PM
good example of shallow DOF
Well captured
02/09/2004 03:53:55 PM
great angle, great focus 10/10
02/09/2004 01:12:57 PM
9 from me..very well done.

A nice example of shallow DOF and the diagonal does add interest to the composition. Two negatives from my point of view - one is that the subject matter just isn't hugely interesting and two is that the top left corner of the frame feels too tight - by that I mean that the subject matter - the gulls - are too close to the edges of the frame.

Blue background with wood foreground works very well. Getting the bird looking right at you a plus on composition.

Beautifully captured and observed.
