photoblog image Reflecting Gulls

Reflecting Gulls

Sadly I forgot my camera was in +.7 exposure bias from the night before when I was shooting and since my batteries were low i'd turned off all the displays and didnt' preview my shots until the end of the afternoon. I do like the colours and reflections in this shot as the snow and ice melt on the skating rink at Nathan Philips Square

Not quite as good as pigeons, but the seagull has a bit more attitude.. Making them the bigger badder version of the pigeon...

I love the colours in this. I wouldn't have thought a photo like this was taken in Nathan Philips Square. (By the way, were you using a Lensbaby in the photo you linked?)
Iain Myrans: Yes, the photo I liked back to was taken with a lensbaby a few months ago smile It was a lensbaby 2.0 and that was one of my first days out with it. I have a number of lensbaby shots in the previous week to this photo if you go back in the archives too if you're interested. smile As for this shot yes, this is where the ice rink was before it melted and before it's been flooded into a pond for the summer.
I like this very much. The colours are great. They're always waiting for a handout thus gulls make good subjects.

It looks like a bold and brassy painting instead of being a photo. What I like more than anything are the huge lumps of blue in the water. Mind you, I like the seagulls too.

Interesting to see what +7 does to exposure, I've been messing with it lately too!
