Shot at work out at sea, was a hard challenge as I dont have a "bird lens" My 60mm served me well. Threw some fish in the sea and tried to get him as close as possible.

Love the colour and look of the water. That gull is a contortionist, took me a while to see his head.

I like the lighting on the water, the bird looks a bit over sharpened IMO

This looks over processed and unnatural to me.

Crisp, crisp focus. However-the saturation (or lighting) is a bit much which adds to the colors almost merging together between the whites of the water and the whites of the bird making it a bit complex.

Contrast is too high and maybe a hiar over saturated.

A very graceful turn of the wing and gorgeous water.

Reflections are distracting,but maybe this could not be helped.
