This seagull graciously stayed in the same spot long enough for me to get close and take its picture while I changed the position of the polarizer filter on my lens. This filter helped me to get a deeper blue in the sky, as well as to eliminate glare and unwanted shine from the bird’s feathers and beak.

Contrast and color adjustments, as well as sharpening, were performed in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

Technical data: 1/2000th sec at f/5.6, ISO 100.
