Judy Curnow, Bonaparte's Gull
(Digital - Intermediate)
Interest: 5.8 Composition: 5.8 Technique: 6 Total: 17.5
Exposure: ISO:1000 f/10 1/4096 400 mm
- This is a good capture of the flying gull. The bird's eye is sharp with a nice catch light. There is good definition of the feathers on the body. The bird is well-placed in the frame. While the background is out of focus, the maker should consider reducing the amount of background that appears in the frame to give the bird more prominence.
- Lovely gliding gull positioned perfectly in the frame. Wings in an upward or downward position is more interesting. Minimal feather details
- Flying birds always fun. Need more SS on this one. Shoot white birds at about -1EV.
- Excellent detail & exposure in the gull, nice dark bokeh behind its off the white gull. Composition would be better if bird was higher in the frame. Great catchlight in the eye.
