A lot of my comments wanted a better focus or crisper image, but they have obviously not been to the oregon coast in february and climbed the tallest, slickest rock on the beach and tried to balance in high wind and rain, holding the camera in one hand and the rock for dear life in the other! :-P

This ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/100301/120/747154.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/100301/120/747154.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' is the same rock on a much different day. The bird was in the same spot as the one in this picture at the left edge of the bluff.

Rant over. :-)

very nice photo, im not to sure of the copm tho i think it minght have been a bit mor intristing if the rule of thirds were aplyed here possibaly putting the bird a bitr more to the left of the photo. and maybe do some curves of brighting,to chang the mood a bit but very nice sharpnes, nice work!
