Thanks everyone for your votes and your nice comments, I did not expect this one to score that high at all. This was taken at a lake in Chestnut Hill, MA. I did not do much post-processing to this image other than the regular levels, curves, some exposure adjustments and USM.

Love your post-processing on this one, dynamite image. An angle I've rarely seen done effectively. Hmmm. Think I'll add it as a favorite.

This would have done well in the light on white challenge. You captured an unusual point of view here. Well done. The border is okay. 8.

Excellent capture of the wings accented by the crop. Good luck on this light on white study. -8-

Ah those wonderful gulls. They just love posing for a camera. Very nicely done. I like the white background. Have seen other background colors, and they seem to distract too much from the image. Nice job!!

Beautiful!!! This would have won the light on white challenge and should be one of the top one in this challenge. Good Luck!

8 - Excellent capture, including 'pose' capture. Seemingly very good control of the whites, especially on this light/white background. Really like how the tailfeathers appear almost translucent. Criticism; difficult, a little more detail in the 'fore wings' or even tips, may have made this even better, but likely lose the detail in the face/tail, so who knows. Not sure on the frame, seems a bit 'harsh' (especially the black & thickness) for the delicacy of the main features (feathers) of the bird.

I also have a bird shot in the challenge and feel it is at least equal to this one...however...when I really think about it...yours is better so I'll give you 2 points higher than I am currently getting scored.....you get an 8.

Amazing

Just lovely. Could be wrong but I don't think it's very easy to get the right contrast on white against white but you seem to have executed it very effectively.

Beautiful detail and wing position. Lighting is terrific too - just enough to really highlight the individual feathers nicely. Great job.

Excellent composition. The stop action is spot on and the clarity of focus is perfect. I like this very much. 9

Wow!! lighting, contrast, crop, detail - excellent! I love the translucence of the tail feathers. What an excellent photo. Top ten at the very least.

Good moment to catch, like the clear texture of the feathers. A bit too blended into the washed out background but has a nice effect..
