I took the viewfinder and my Canon down to the beach on Sunday to take some summer shots.

This is one of the results from that day. The seagull flew into the shot and I didn’t notice it until I started processing this one. There was a feeling of closure and finality in this shot with the gull included.

I really enjoy a bright sunny day with a few clouds scattered across the sky. Especially sitting down on the beach, really makes me feel like a kid again.

Original shot cropped and layered once, with hue adjustment and a warming filter added.

    I have been coming back and back to this trying to see the seagull…its driving me nuts! However I do love the look of this image, but pleasseeee tell me where the gull is

  • Lol, ok, see the cloud furthest to the left in the image. The gull is directly above the middle of that cloud. Tiny, can only be distinguished by the black feathers under the wings.

    Great shot! I had trouble seeing the seagull at first but I found it? Alternative title could be “Where’s Jonathon?” ;-)

  • Haha, I like that! I was hoping the gull wouldn’t jump out at everyone to begin with, hunting can be fun :)
