Lovely shot Dave great focus on the eye, nice and sharp  but the light patch on the water tend to draw my eye to the end of the beak and now I've seen it it's more noticeable, if you know what I mean.

Thanks Irv, the light patch is probably OOF grasses that were between myself and the gannet,as I had to sneak up on him, shame as you say though, I don't think I could clone it, could try colour replace brush,  or if anyone's got any other ideas

I agree with Irv, if this was my pic i would darken the background on the left hand side, this would focus your eyes back to the gannet  :)

yes - i'm going with the Trickee edit - though it was a good picture in the first place. Just needed "tidying up"

Craig, I've embedded it into your post above.  ;)  You just need to add the image address (not page address) between image tags, like this,

Dave.  A lovely photo, and focus is spot on.  I do like Craig's edit though.  :tup:
