Nice B&W

A camera with more DR always helps, i love the K5's huge DR.

Higher shutter speed would have helped too, as you're obviously not panning.

Your lens did just fine.

Anyway, i though everybody else's advice was right on (horizon, gull flying into the image, highlights, rescuing the shadows, graduated ND, etc..) and since i've been on a B&W fad recently, i did that too. Plus it's easier to edit - hopefully i was not too sloppy. I hope you don't mind my tampering your image! 

There's a flock of another 8 seagulls coming your way, did you get any shots of them?

Your photoshop talents greatly exceed mine.

Thank you, well done.

I will have to go back and look if I got the flock in the background but I don't think so.

Oh, and of course i really like the original, an excellent catch! Was the camera on a tripod? Where was this taken?

The shot was handheld and the location is Cannon Beach, Oregon which is a few miles south of the Oregon/Washington border.

You can PP my photos anytime.
