Hello Jean,

This is a lovely capture of a gull with its feathers fluttering in the breeze. The image is sharp, the details very good and it stands ou well against the neutral b/g.

The composition is just a little too tight and therefore, you have lost a toe. If you will permit, I have done a w/s to correct this little problem.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi JY, these birds are always good models for us, and they do take a good photo too.
Lovely colours and sharp details. It is a pity the end of his foot is cropped off though. I do like Bev's workshop repairing it.
I like how the wind is blowing up the feathers.
