    Oh great shot Yannick! Love the illumination on the gull and the way it is posed not only showcasing those wonderful wings but the delicate feet and wingtail as well!

  • Thank you very much Joanne for the compliment :) I was able to erase the overlaying texture by enlarging very much the image :)
    Have a great evening!
