[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Probably a black headed gull, adult. Flying over the river to drop by at the confluence of the Hyeongsan-gang [gang is the Korean name for river - which, colloquially speaking, is exactly the same (phonetically) in my native tongue] and the city sewer canal. The spot is popular with birds as the brings in so many things with it, to feed on.

Thanks to Joska for telling me that this is a mature bird. The title is mis-leading - which I kept deliberately!! :)

Hello Subhayan,
Very good sharp photo of this Gull, I think, it is an adult Gull!
Regards, Joska

it's not coming out of my 'prophesied policy', just a fact that like blue birds... like Hornbills... a bird in flight was my weakness too.
so here we go.. :)
good try.
good clarity. nice bird. lovely pose. and good framing [the space you have given in front].
but not-so-good sharpness, a little disturbed exposure [it happens when you are dealing with these two fundamental colours: black and white. i am experience ;)].. and wish there was a catch-light in the eye. but, birds don't pose for us, right? especially, while flying :)
did you feel good in taking the shot?
because that's important.
with regards
Ruby

Hello Subhayan,
fine in-flight shot of this gull with good sharpness and and lovely details like the feathers on the left wing. I also like the natural colours.
Best wishes,
Helmut

hello Subhayan,
in flight shot of a bird is more or less difficult but you did it with great skill. nice sharp picture and good composition.
