[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another shot of the Ring-billed Gull taken at Grapevine Lake on 12/05/06.

For information on the Ring-billed Gull, please see previous post.

This photo was sharpened slightly, slight adjustment in contrast, and I ran the noise filter on Neat Image at the lowest level.

The ISO was 200 and the focal length was 110mm.

Hi Ken.
Next excellent in-flight shot with perfect DOF and exposure. The lighting of your shot is very nice as well as the sharpness of whole image and details of the gulls. Wonderful colours and good cropping. My best wishes and TFS.

Hi Ken, you have a good pic here showing the 3 gulls together. They are all in focus quite well, and congratulations on the one in flight. Very good capture of him flying. Well done,
Janice

Hi Ken,
Fine sharp action shot showing the upper surface of the gull in flight, which happens less often. Nice comp.
TFS, best wishes, Ivan

Good work, Ken.
Especially in terms of compo; the gull triangle with the neutral saturated sea is very good.
The in flight one has good details and sharpness.

Hi Ken,
very nice inflight shot, usually we see flying birds belly first, so this is a nice change.
POV, details and sharpness are very good. Very well composed action shot.
