Hi Trekkers,

The weather on this weekend in Southern Ireland wasn't too good, but yesterday afternoon we had a few, more or less sunny hours, so we went for birdwatching to the seaside next to Rostellan village (ca. 15 minutes driving from my apartement). I managed to catch a bunch of black-headed gulls (Chroicocephalus ridibundus), just trying to chase away a 2-year-old common gull (Larus canus).

Photo: taken in manual exposure mode, with manual ISO and auto white balance. Drive mode: bracketing. PP: moderate cropping, level adjustment, after re-sizing slight selective sharpening.

Thanks for looking.

Waaw Laszlo,what a timing and what a quality! The sharpness on the in flight gulls of different species is amazing!!! Great capture,lucky light but very professional camera settings made by a great photographere! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano


I see that bracketing helped with the image. You were able to get the right shot. patience must be the key. Nice capture with tis image.

Szia László,
A great shot !!
This is spectacular image. Very good composition and good sharpness.
Best wishes,

Hi Laszlo,

This is a fantastic shot! Don't know how you managed to obtain this level of sharpness in a flight shot. You even managed to get the catch light on the gull. Amazing!!

Warm Regards,

Hello Lazlo,
Nice to see you are capturing flying birds pictures :-)

Well captured. Details and sharpness look very good. I like its natural habitat in the BG.
I would like to clone the left bottom side bird out, to maintain ODD NUMBER composition.
Although it's my personal view ;-)
Thanks for sharing your work with us,

Ciao Laszlo, great capture of fantastic inflight couple in a beautiful enviroment, wonderful natural colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
