I'm a little surprised nobody's noticed how the patterns on the lower slat on the back of the bench so strangely echo the shape of the gull and it's extended, cloaking wings. That's actually WHY I processed it to emphasize the back of the bench so...

Love the composition Robt and for me this is a great shot of a gull. Ok, I noticed the nice wood but me being me didn't twig about it mirroring the gull ;)

I claim that I would have seen it without your help, though I am lying:) A cool shot regardless of the mirroring and I like the b&w treatment.

I noticed. ...ok not until after I read your note, but hey, you didn't even give me a chance! :)

this could be a fossil of a seagull.

My brain tells me that this must be a seagull, but it's such an oddly frozen moment that I keep staring at it, imagining it to be, well, all sorts of things other than a seagull.

This is a very cool shot. I just noticed that the BG is water. And the bench is floating on it. And the bird almost looks like a strange sea creature that is about to land on the bench. Wonderful.

You are having fun with this! It shows, you know. This is such an odd frozen moment too; one that we don't really see in the flesh.

I love this shot. It has an other worldy feel to it.

I keep watching the LB thread and drooling (my wife is currently shopping for a plastic cover for my keyboard). When the LB's first came out, so many years ago, I kind of dismissed them as a toy. But, after seeing some of the work done with them I realized they could be an interesting tool. After seeing the images in the LB thread I realize they can be a fantasic tool of expression.

very interesting - you've got the bird in flight, but (to me) more motion would be implied if the bird were more in focus and the bench were blurred.
