Wings of the seagull by elektronist

ovar2008: WOW!!! This is a terrific capture.

cynlee: Simply gorgeous shot, Tanju!

Tedi: Excellent capture and very unusual pose of the seagull. Good luck.

Nikoneer: I agree... an excellent entry. The bokeh puts all the emphasis on the gull and the face is tack-sharp, allowing the slight blur of the wings to express motion. Best of luck, Tanju.

4th place
Mirrored Bliss by quaffapint

LakeMichigan: Congratulations on your placing in the Simplicity contest.

purmusic: Just had the thought that your photo here would be a more than worthy entry to the current contest running.

That of; "Simplicity".

And if taken literally, the definition/meaning of simplicity more than applies, methinks.

Best of luck, should you decided to enter.

And again, it is a nice shot.

p.s. Lil' bit of noise present. Not sure what image editing software you have at your disposal, however.. and forging ahead ... here is a freeware noise removal program available as standalone or plugin:

Neat Image

A Bud In The Sun by Jimbobedsel

LadyR: Could that possibly be a PussyWilow? Lovely shot - the blurred / obscured background really makes the bud pop!

Well deserved.
I love this image - it really brings the sunshine with it :)
