Gulls Below the Surf

The gull standing were such a great subject, I was tempted to get down to sand level and see how they looked with the surf as a background. I was surprised at how high it rose above them. Moderate tel to compress the image planes, and tight cropping top and bottom emphasizes the horizontal lines of the image.

Sony DSC H50 at about 315mm equivalent. F4.5 @ 1/250th @ ISO 100. Programmed auto.

Cropped in Lightroom. Some Recovery for the sky an surf highlights. Blackpoint well to the right. Added Clarity and Vibrance and the Sharpen Landscapes preset.
