Was hanging around Brooklyn today, my intended subject was unavailable today so I went over to the Brooklyn Bridge. This guy landed on the railing right in front of me for a few minutes. First time posting in the CC, be kind. All suggestions welcome. Thanks.

Pretty cool composition, though it seems the colors are a bit off to me

Agree with above. A little tweak to WB and this would be an even cooler shot.

I agree -- fix the white balance/colors and maybe brighten it a bit? Nice click!

Here is another try, colors closer to what was actually shot.

Definitely an improvement! Are the verticals leaning slightly to the right, or is it just me? I love the gull's little feet!
