Botany Bay Seagull

By Della_W
Here is my first upload.

Taken on a recent trip to Botany Bay on the Isle of Thanet, Kent.

Still learning, and enjoying, the art of photography with encouragement from my husband (Shaun_W). At least I think it is encouragement!

hi della, welcome to ePz :o)

im a sucker for seagulls, i reckon they're really under rated!

anyway, this is an ok shot, but the hghlights seem to be a little over exposed and the bird looks a little soft. might be my 4.30 am eyes, or indeed my lcd minotor.

one of the common things i think most people do to 500 pixel uploads is give them another sharpen before they post them.

obviously, this isn't gospel, but it might have helped this shot a little.

i still like it though, well done, and having fun is they key isn't it??

It may be a bit of a thug the old herring gull but it's still a very handsome bird and such an evocative call! Anyway, welcome to ePz Della and a good start with this one. Hope to see more of your work as time goes by.
