Not sure about this. Taken in Scarborough last Thursday and I've cropped to make it even more out of balance, but thought it looked quite strong. You will all tell me!

EOS 40D with 18/250 OS Sigma at 250mm (350mm). Used my rule of thumb exposure for bright sun - 1/800 @ f8 and ISO200 on manual. Slight darkening of image and smart sharpen.

I like it. Theres good detail on the gull, which looks good against the dark blue sky, and its looking from the bottom right corner towards the top left, - sort of a sight line.

graphically it is good and the contrast is nice too, from a pictorial view it works fine but as a natural history subject its from an angle looking upwards which is rarely praised.

im between stools on it to be honest, i like it but for me, it dosnt really have enough content to maintain interest for very long but if you were to counterbalance the negative space with a second bird with open wings in the top left corner or similar, I think it would take a grabshot to another level. they are so easy to cutout and paste in when on a solid blue sky it may be worth the experiment. depends if you are a purist or not i guess- Wink

best regards

I like it for its simplicity, Paul. However, Phil gave me an idea, so I have done a modification using one of my own gull images. See what you think.

Very interesting POV. I like the lines..
I really love the title, because we never see higher view than seagull's..this title could be seagull's high viewpoint or could be the viewers.. very clever!
Actually the seagull made me Grin..

Can see Phill's point, and Pamela's mod is interesting. It is the difference between very basic and simple and an image full of detail - depends on the individual I suppose. I like the idea of the mod, but something doesn't look right - the perspective I think plus, possibly - silly this - the different types of gull.

I've got another Gull shot I'll put up - with some background - taken a couple of weeks earlier in Bridlington.
