[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today's shot seems to be a little psychodellic in the preview because of the frame.
I hope you will like my experiment.
The shot is handheld without tripod.

I don't know what to tell more about this gull, sorry.
So I wish you all a wonderful sunday ...

You mean you created that sort of "frame" yourself, Sabine? I thought it was some man-made structure as BG!
Anyway, this is an awe-inspiring shot. The bird seems to be snooping down at the viewer. Fantastic effect and a masterly stroke of hand-held photography.

mit dem rahmen bin ich mir nicht so ganz sicher, aber die flugaufnahme ist echt spitze, sabine! :-)
die körperhaltung und die gespreizten flügelfedern sind klasse, und das "fahrgestell" ist auch schon ausgefahren.
terrific job & sonntägliche grüße, thor.

Very well captured,especially hand held.

hello sabine,
lovely shot, liked the composition and the pov, nice lighting, sharp image,
well done,
tfs & regards

Hi Sabine,
An excellent in flight shot on the gull. Nice color and detail in the plumage. The backround /framing you created gives a very nice abstract feel to the shot. It enhances the scene well IMHO.

Nice cut and flip for the frame. DOF and POV are great too.
Best regards,

Bel instantané bien mis en évidence par un mise en cadre originale.
Bonne journée.

Hello Sabine,
This is a wonderful in-flight shot with very nice back lightning on bird feathers. It makes them brilliant. Exposure is superb and well controlled! As it is for the frame, I think I prefer sober ones but this is well done though :) Thanks!

Hi Sabine.
It is really cool, both the charming bird at wonderful pose and the BG. Terrific delicateness of the reproduction of the feathers and white colour tones. Extremely refined art work. Bravo and best wishes.

Hello Wishnu, this is a magnificent shot of the Gull. I especially like the ambient light through the feathers. Interesting and effective pov. Great sharpness and detail, can even see the light in the eyes. Very interesting frame also.
