Another wonderful bird on the wing. Well composed, nicely lit, and good detail Ranger. And thanks for the very informative notes... TFS
You must have been shooting with a high ISO eh Asbed? This is quite the close in flying for yyou. I can see you have no arthritis problems..looking up for me causes pain..of course now days even sitting here causes pain:-0
A fine image and well noted. Good and pleasing colours...Very nice addition!
the gull looks me strange for a ring billed gull. Is ti maybe a Smithsonian gull (Larus smithsonianus)?

A fine capture of a juvenile Ring-billed Gull struggling to gain height as it tries to get away from the photographer. The lighting is excllent her as is the composition and the sharpness is good, though the BG a little noisy.
TFS this fine action shot,

Very good capture of this Ring-billed Gull in flight. Good POV and composition, sharp details, good capture of movement, a bit noisy, nice blue sky on BG.

Wow, I am impressed! A great in-flight of this young gull. You've frozen him in a wonderful position. The face, wings, plummage, tail feathers and legs are all perfectly clear with fine details and nice black and white. I love the raised wing and the expression on his face. The only thing that could use improvement is the noise in the sky. A great action shot and a wonderful composition.

spettacolare cattura in volo di questo gabbiano, splendida composizione per la bellissima postura (una delle più belle che ho visto), eccellente la definizione, IMHO un piccolo eccesso di sharp. Un eccellente lavoro con la Colpix P60.
C'est une belle composition avec une bonne exposition. Je ne connais pas cet appareil mais il semble que le bruit crée à ISO 100 est assez important et ça me laisse un peu perplexe :) Bien vu!

Nice inflight of this gull, it looks as if he is in a hard banking situation. This is fun Asbed to try and catch things in flight, yes.

Fantastic in-flight picture. Great timing, superb pictured pose of the bird, wonderful a bit cloudy sky and exposure of the image at whole. Lights and colours are fine too. Well done and TFS.

Capturing a bird in flight is difficult, the point of view is showing the details and colors of the gull. The picture is clear and sharp. THe subject is well frame. The light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
Superbe capture de cette mouette en plein vol, le mouvement est bien figé
En travaillant a 100 ISO tu ne devrais pas avoir de bruit?
As tu recadré ta photo? je ne vois que cette raison.
Toutefois il devrait etre possible de reduire ce bruit avec Nikon Capture ou Photoshop

Excellent capture, I like pose and point of view,good note.
Nice comp & POV. Good detail, exposure, and colors.
The clouded sky BG looks great, and I like the graceful pose too :)
Oh wow! You did really well on this one Asbed! The action is frozen and the bird really sharp!! I like the light. It isn't always easy to get a correct exposure against the sky. Howard's WS really cleaned up the noise. I like the placement of the subject in the frame. Nice work. I am trying to get caught up after being out of town... but I am all out of green smilies!
TFS : ) : ) : )
