Now, before you tell me I chopped off the tip of its wing, you go out and try and capture a seagull mid-flight. haha

If I ever get a better shot of a flying seagull (or any bird, really) I'll probably move this one to the scraps....unless you guys like it...

I think it adds to the space dynamically to have the wing cropped. Awesome angle. Jealous of your skill, I wouldn't have been able to focus the camera in time....

Thanks for your thoughts on the crop. It does kinda give the impression that the bird is quickly escaping the frame.

Great capture, I think you could get away with cropping a little more off the right side.

Thanks, I'm liking it more and more without the tip of that wing. It makes it feel like the bird is trying to escape the frame.

Nix the scraps idea. This is really cool, and who cores aboot the cliped off wing--for all we know, it had no wing there in the first place, am I right???

I agree with the above comment. In spite of the fact that his wing is cropped a little, I am amazed that you got this shot so nicely. (Then again I am thinking of how I would do at trying to photograph a flying bird.)
