Take Off

By Nigeve1
A Fulmar taking off on the North Sea. The swell was helpful with this one, the boat being at the bottom of the swell and the Fulmar on top giving a low POV. Difficult to keep in frame with the boat movement though, just managed this, there is no horizontal cropping but all the cropping is from the top, a little higher and the action would have been out of frame.

Well why fly when you can run? He may suffer from vertigo...
As Alan says, bloody brilliant. I love the fact that he's doing the splits, with both feet in the air, and the curving splash of water droplets. Let's make that three UAs.

Very well caught Nigel and the crop suits it well - I think I would have liked to see a bit more space in front of it though - I can see that you wanted to keep the nicely frozen splash behind but there is one close to its feet and it might be a bit more balanced if there was room for it to move into as it were. Anyway just a thought - its a great shot.
