Great capture. This was one of my 8s in the challenge. Nice detail and sharp focus. I had hoped this would score higher. Great work.

Great detail on the bird. Background is just enough to provide a nice canvas.

Looks almost fake - like it's oversharpened or severely noise-reduced. I think it's the thin grey outline around the bird.

I can't believe how sharp the gull is!

Great illustration of Paul McCartney's "Fly Like An Eagle!" (That is if I didn't just screw up my music history.) :}
