Franklin's Gull Flyby
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I've been using this shot for the past few days as my Windows wallpaper. It shows a Franklin's Gull at Red Deer Lake in Calgary, Alberta. The gulls frequently swoop down to catch insects near the water, and come reasonably close to me as they fly up again. I was fortunate to catch this one on one of those near flybys.|
In PP, in addition to cropping, all I did was to adjust the contrast and brightness a little, and do noise reduction and sharpening.

A great shot. These birds often have an erratic flight and are very hard to follow through your camera. The image is very neat and you make a good use of all the surface of the frame.

Très bon résultat. Bonne précision sur cet oiseau en vol.
Encore bravo, j'aime beaucoup.
Great bird in flight shot which are not easy. The lighting is very nice and there are still details to be seen in the shadows. TFS

Nice capture. Excellent focus and exposure. Simple compsition on a neutral and uncluttered BG. And the diagonal composition looks great. TFS.
