Greetings and Happy New Year from the CC. Well you certainly met the challenge, and produced a good shot and got a ribbon! Congratulations! The DOF is very good, and the claws on the edge are wonderful. He is sharp and the tones in his wing are very appealing. My only suggestion may be that you give the bird a bit of room to fly into. Though it would produce an odd shaped photo. Maybe cleaning up the slight silver on the bottom may be a good idea too. Overall very nicely done, keep shooting!

A very beautiful crisp photograph. It's hard to take a new shot of a very common species and make it stand out, but you have done an excellent job. Congrats on your win!

nice shot of the seagull, but maybe a more proper title would be "land's edge" because there's no water in the shot...

Nice capture. I like how you got the shot with the wings expanded. And yes, he is on the edge. :-) Good exposure although maybe just a big blown out on the tail. Not much you can do with that though within the rules. Very nice! Good luck with the challenge!

Beautiful capture !

Finally a shot that clearly meets the challenge... Very clear. If the shot was taken with out the wings spread it's a very plain shot. The wings being spread add a lot to this. Good capture.

Absolut! Very nice shot. You capture the moment.
