standing still

This shot was taken in a real hurry. Usual story, was setting up another shot and then something unexpected and entirely better presents this case this seagull lands right in front of me. It was practically dark at the time and I didn't want to waste time fumbling around with shutter speed etc just in case the bird took off. I just clicked and hoped the creature would stay still. Thankfully, it did, at least on this click.


I have done some minor tweaking in PS to improve contrast etc, which has sort of accentuated the look that the bird is composited into the image. However, the original looks much the same.
