Award Shortlist   

Got my eye on you.

By barnowl
Taken today on Skomer with the help of a kind gentleman called Duncan who lent me his 500mm f4 IS. That lens is one fabulous bit of kit. Met Paul And Duncan,both from ephotozine, who had made the long journey up from Cornwall especially to go to Skomer. The birds were out in force and I hope that it made all the effort worthwhile guys.

Yup, reckon it's better than either of the head shots I have posted recently.

Superb shot in all respects. Good composition, nice and sharp and exposed very well indeed.The sun seems high and good skills to keep the whites.
That's a wonderful lens in the right hands:o)

Don't know if you've tried putting the head a bit higher in the frame?

Great picture Gary. I was there with Duncan and Paul, great day out with lots of action. Still have to go through my pictures and will post something later today.

Well done on getting the awards.
