Perfect, Dan. The only thing you could have asked for was the gull to pick up her head a little into the sun. But you've got it just right. Focus is perfect as are the lines in the background, so the whole composition, although the eyes are center, is beautifully interesting. That's just my opinion, but you asked. Thanks.

I blew out a bit of the whites but it's not too bad. Thanks for the comments.

The whites are a little blown, but I don't think it detracts from the image, its still a great shot!

Really good job there MR C. You managed to capture the gull as it was still over the dark water, which helps frame it and give contrast.
The framing on the last one is wonderful too. Love the bokeh. (300/4 ?)

Both are very nice Dan...the poor gulls have a bad reputation, but they sure take great pictures and you've captured them perfectly.

I like the borders also, you don't happen to have that recorded as an action in PS do you. I'm having trouble with Framing and borders.
Any tips you could provide would be appreciated, even a run through on what you did. Thanks
Shots are excellent.

The first Dan, is a nice shot of the fan-tail, spread well out, so a good angle on this shot. And with your second shot, the landing one, a good spread of the wings as he puts the brakes on, this one shows good feather detail, good shots Dan, well done.

Very nice shots Dan, I especially like the fact that you shot the bird below you while in flight, not an angle that we see very often.
