Simple Seagull Enjoying a Scrummy Sunset

By OliPackwood  
Good Evening,

A nice simple seagull shot. I really like the light in this shot, even though it has a slightly over exposed chest.

Beautifully caught! Because it's facing into the light it has rather over exposed the chest (as you point out), but if it had faced the other way the face would have been shadowed. Smile

Not an easy subject to capture in strong directional and contrasty light Oli.
If you get the chance to try this again try taking a number of shot with differing exposure times varying speeds and apertures. This way you will stand a much better chance of getting a more manageable image. Its always going to be a compromise tho.
