I took a picture of a seagull today. Actually I took a lot of them but this was the best one. I wish I could have taken a better pic than this. Here are my outtakes - tell me if I went wrong:

Nice close up with good detail. The tail is a little hot, but the overall composition is nice. 8 -danny

Would like to see more details in the wings. Good framing of the subject though.

Good capture. I wish the skies could have been a nice deep crispy blue, that would have looked amazing, but this is still good too. There is a slight magenta tinge in the top right hand corner.

Not as sharp as it could be. Maybe it was too much enlargement. I know how that can be with birds. Nice angle though.

Nice ring-billed gull. Cropped perfectly. Good shot.

Not too bad of a shot. I just don't like the smooth look of the feathers...they don't appear [normal]...like too much neat image was used. The composition is nice as is the gulls' face. Your sure on the topic of the challenge.

nice closeup, I've tried getting a good closeup of a seagull and I know it can be quite challenging to get a clear shot, so good job!

Excellent capture. If the tail wasn't overexposed it would be perfect.
