Two's company, three's a flock

By Nettles  
It was such a nice day yesterday that we decided to put down tools and go to Whitby.
I took this shot of the gulls flying around trying to get the chips that were being thrown over the edge of the pier.
I have put on a second version where the third gull has been removed, as no doubt some will not like the partial one in the corner.

As we had the day off yesterday I will have very little time for EPZ, and will only be able to click and run, sorry.

Thanks for looking and hope you all have a great weekend.

Great bit of cloning work in No. 2 but compositionally I prefer No. 1.

Like V2 because i find the gull in bottom right a bit off putting.

But well done to capture birds in flight I am rubbish at it no matte how I try LOL

I do like this shot. V1 for me as the 3rd gull adds to the action and feeling of movement. V2 is altogether too tidy.

I was going to say the partial gull didn't bother me...........then I looked at version 2 - I must admit perhaps it does!! I do prefer Version 2!! Smile

Two super seagull shots, like v2 the best. I hope you were wearing a hat in case they tried to bomb you!
