Yet another Seagull. Was playing with a D70 in the park.
Wow, this picture is very nice. Its really sharp and great in composition with the wings towards the corners! Karolina
love the rain (?) in the shot too
how do you get these focused so well
Very well caught especially in what must have been low light conditions. Great shot.
Excellent image. Sharp and full of detail. Well done Miles.
Thanks for the comments. This was taken with a brand new D70 straight out of the box, with a Sigma 70 - 300 F5.6 APO fitted. Exposure was set on manual by accident (!) and was I think 1/60th at F8. ISO was set at 400 for the low light. I wasn't actually aware it was raining as this was taken from where I was sat inside the car. Seagull was hovering in a strong head wind.
Must say that first impression of the D70 is... WOW. Second impression is ... must try the Sigma 50 - 500 on it!
Well caught Miles focus is spot on with good detail and composition.
superb wing detail...
So sharp it gives this seagull a personality!! Brilliantly captured!
A brilliant capture, Miles, very well done.
Miles - this is great, I love the rain as well as the bird! Fantastic,
Beautifully sharp image. Well captured.
Great shot - nice back ground
Such a sharp, detailed photo, click.
Congratulations on an excellent shot and a well deserved award.
brilliant shot, so sharp, click
Spot on! Well done on the award.
Yes no question this photo deserves an EC!..great shot'.
Superb capture Miles.
Wow, didn't expect this. Thank you for the comments, and thank you for the award Pete. Have to smile a little at this, The first reel of film I ever put through my F80, one of the images from Poole Park won an EC, and now on the D70, the first few pictures, also from Poole Park, this one wins an EC. Must be something to do with Nikons
great shot miles. i looked straight away to see what camera you used and was surprised to see D70! Those Lee filters werent enough to quench the appetite I see
Whats it like then? I have to admit Im tempted!
You got mail Adam. Thanks for the comment.
Beautifully sharp snd well-composed. Nice one!
Superb, well done on the award.
Excellent detail & composition Miles & a worthy EC too!
Great shot! so crisp and clear...would be rapt to be able to call this one of mine...by the way, your seagulls look different to ours! rather pretty actually.
Extremely good work for using a new camera literally out-of-the-box! Hope to see more from the D70 soon.
Great capture Miles - congrats on yet another EC - you will soon fill the page! - steve
Superb Stuff once again what about shooting a bad shot just to show us you can.Well done

Fantastic quality photograph! Well done.
Wonderful shot, about as good as it gets, well done,
Stunning sharp shot Miles, congratulations.
Simply perfect, great clarity.
this is spot on . Bloody good image.
A great capture Miles. Congratulations on the EC. The definition and composition are superb .
BTW . I like and am amazed at your bio picture. I imagined you as a venerable old man with siver hair as you are so knowledgable and such a great photographer. Didn't realise I was talking to a YOUNG man ))click
Mavis! Flattery will get you everywhere!, but thankyou for your kind comments.
Fantastic shot..............an accident? Jeez!
They dont come much better than this congratulations.
WOW!! 50th click Miles!
There is nothing left for me to say!!
(don't know how I managed to miss this one!)
What can I say that has not already been said! Fantastic shot of the seagull, it is so sharp and detailed, the lighting perfect.
Fantastic shot! near to perfect as you can probably be. I love the whole feel of it, everything seems to fit together, the colours of the gull with the background and the rain and the border too! Not to mention its so sharp you could cut yourself on it!
Outstanding - congratulations on a well-deserved EC! *click*
