Downbeat

By brian1208
Another shot from yesterday's trip to the seaside. I was please with this shot as I managed to get a sense of the surf pounding the shore in the background.

Great shot, I can feel the breezy weather, the wave in the background really sets it off. The seagul is very sharp.

thanks himalk. I thought it looked like it was working really hard to fly against the wind. Its good we all see different aspects of the same shot Smile

just seen your comment, thanks zippie. I had to lean against the seawall to hold the camera steady for this one.

Another good shot, more of a picture than a portrait if you get my drift. Click.

Gerwyn, Steve - thanks for taking time to comment. Gerwyn, if what you are saying is that this is more than just a photograph of a seagull, thanks - that's what I tried for Smile

Just seen your comment, thanks Brian
