[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Saw this gull on a bridge in Bourton On The Water. It stayed there for ages and just let me keep photographing it, probably in the hope I might feed him. I have a few more shots of him but I think that this is the sharpest and clearest one I got. I would provide information on him but I am not sure if he is a certain type of gull or not. Hope you all enjoy.

Hello Sion,
a good picture of this Common Gull (Larus ridibundus) taken from an excellent lateral POV with fine deaitls of tthe feathers, beautiful colours in a nice composition
Best regards


This is a great close-up; amazing that you were able to get so close!

I made some changes to brighten up the image and posted them to a workshop.

Hallo Sion,

Beautiful image and a fantastic player. I know how difficult is it surprising that. I tried and I like something and we just posted a collage of seagulls.
Have a super week,

Hello Sion! Nice seagull, very nice scene, good natural lightness, very good sharpness. Well done!

Hi and Good Morning Sion,

Excellent capture, you've managed to focus in on the gul very nicely. The pose, DOF/POV and composition are also fine.
TFS and have a nice day!
