Bright morning sun, SHQ, Sport mode. I've since become a member, but not soon enough to enter the FLIGHT challenge.

Nice shot of the bird. However, it's seems like a stretch on the theme since there isn't really anything ironic about the picture itself.

If this were in the flight contest I probably would've given it a 4 or 5. The crop seems a big tight to me. Also the line in the background cuts right through the bird. Depending on what the original looks like, I wouldn't have cropped so tight, would've placed the bird in one of the right corners (to give it room to 'fly') to follow the Rule of Thirds a little better.

Overall, decent shot, though.

It is a nice shot, would be much better if the power line wasn't there.

Oh, that's a way to do it. I hope you get some good votes. Thats a note of irony that hits directly on the site. Good work.

Gimme a break! That's not irony... more like a missed opportunity or just you being cheap.

So since you're not a member you'd rather get a million "doesn't fit the challenge" posts just so that your pic can be seen??? There's not a bit of irony in the fact that you're not a member and missed the flight challenge. Pathetic.
Please just put it in the forums next time.

Good except for the line running through the back ground. But great shot of the bird.

the powerline, would have lowered your score in that challenge, this challenge it doesn't seem to fit except your title. Nice gull though.

Yep that's pretty ironic for sure, especially seeing this would have done quite well in the challenge. Pay the 25 dollars, it's worth it :-)
