    I tried very hard to get a good picture of a seagull while at the beach last week. Got a few but overall not entirely happy

    Not sure if I like the motion blur of the wings or the grass really

    Again not sure about the motion blur of the wings...even more so in this one then the first

    Only real issue I have with this one is the shadow on the far wing

    This is my favorite out of the group. I think mainly cause of the sky and more detail then the others

    Comments and critique welcome

    (And the title of the thread is because I also got a bunch of pics of bees I'll be posting in the macro section when I get through them)

    When you shot with the lens, did the seagull take a different direction?

    Nope, they could have really cared less. OCNJ seagulls seem to have no fear of people thats for sure.

    I don't like the black and white effect for animal shots, I feel as though it makes them quite dull. With that said, I love number 5! Good symmetry:thumbup:
