This repesents the challnge of Missed Focus as opposed to Unfocused. Great job and in my oppinion should be the blue

Haha, I was actually trying to get the bird (my wife was sitting right next to me!)

I am so sure that these 2 girls thought otherwise, because they gave my that disgusting paparazzi-like look when they walked by me.

Perfect for this challenge. The gull is sharp as a tack. This is my pick for a ribbon. Nice background too.

Great Photo! I wonder how long u stand on the beach for that single moment. GREAT!

I think your title works well to direct attention away from the bird. While the subject isn't compelling to me, I can see how it would be for others. 7

Definitely compelling!

If this was the UK, there would be some birds in bikinis...

great shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/22/2009 08:27:28 AM
Since the bird is in the title, that makes me think that is the subject, whereas if you called it "the girls of summer..." does that make sense? Not that it matters, just my take on it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/22/2009 08:13:34 AM
This would have been great had the focus point been shifted to the girls..... I still gave it a 7.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/22/2009 04:40:45 AM
Ha...that'll teach you. Stare at the pretty girls and someone will always block your view!!!

Good one

I love the bird, but he's so in focus that it seems like he's actually the subject of the picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/21/2009 09:11:37 PM
haha well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/21/2009 06:56:44 PM
You'll be posting the out takes?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/21/2009 12:49:39 PM
Whoa, did he fly into you?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/21/2009 03:52:54 AM
This made me laugh.
I have a feeling you were taking a pic of this bird and only noticed the girls after lol

09/21/2009 03:16:07 AM
Damn that auto focus function :)
Great shot of the seagull but I find myself being drawn to the background.
