Nice shot Erich.
The seagull is either very hungry or greedy.
Great composition. Your fast shutter speed has stopped the water, love the water droplets.

Ha Ha.. he has a feast ahead! Yum yum... but only if you are a seagull. Well seen. Good low POV, excellent catchlight in the eye, nicely presented, the water splashes are superb, but unfortunately, the focus is a bit soft. Other than that.. great work. Thanks.

Well captured Erich, they'll eat anything and they are always hungry! Good POV shot on his level. The water action looks great. Well done.

A fine shot of this unusual scene... Love the splashing water and the diagonal composition.
I think that a little tweek of PS to sharpen the seagull, at least its head, would be nice .

Great shot! Looks like it's going to have a big fiesta ;-) Nice composition and DOF. Good details of the gull and splashing water. Interesting scene. TFS
Very nice actionshot. The picture is a bit soft. You must have a look a the sharpness setting on the 20D, it must be on +2 to be the same sharpness as the 300D. Either that or you must sharpen more. Did you have a 300D before as I did? I initially had a problem with that. Otherwise it is a fantastic picture.
Great action. One of the things I love the most about nature photography is catching water and mud splashes like you have here.
I might have aledt a bit more space to left and right of the image to include the tip of the gull's tail and more of the "meal". I am about to post a workshop dealing with the sharpness aspect. Have also commented on Jan Hendrik's WS. Hope you like it. Cheers, Rob
