All surprisingly silent and very serious!! by robz

All surprisingly silent and very serious!!

I very rarely manage to catch a bird in any image which is even half way decent. Then these 3 just made my day - sat there and posed! Unfortunately, they were not all on the same rock so this is a composite to show all of them being so well mannered. :)
Actually I like them being in opposition. It's almost like a town meeting.

Nice composite

Great shot

they do look as though they are cooking up a rather devious theft of someone's chips
July 27th, 2019  
wow they do look crisp and wonderfully detailed !

Well done on the composite, it really doesn't show. Beautiful clear capture of this trio. Fav.

Most of the time they are screeching along. Lovely capture!

Seems they have a meeting for what to do the rest of the day :) good clear shot, fav

Eeerily so -- but still a cool image.

You are too honest, we'd not have guessed!

Planning whose picnic they are going to plunder not a doubt in my mind! Nice shot!
July 27th, 2019  
Well done, I didn't notice that this is a composite. The birds are beautiful and I enjoy to see them so close :)

I didn't see them as two different pictures until you mentioned it, so good job on the composite work! Yes, they look very serious for gulls. I wonder what they're contemplating! Good shot.

The one on the rightlooks as if he must be king

Excellent composite. Your processing is so perfect that it does not show.
Well done!
July 28th, 2019  
awesome!

So pleased to be paired with you once again and thank you for your ICM challenge with a twist!
For your challenge I would like you to find an object that would work in all three foreground, middle ground, and background photos and then make it the focal of all three shots.
Hope this makes sense and hope it works for you! Let me know if you need further clarification.

Looks like they sat down to have a meeting and when they saw you, they went quiet. Must be a secret.......
July 28th, 2019  
Wow great job with the composite...............a lovely detailed shot!
July 28th, 2019  
I love the way they appear to be organizing a meeting of some sort! Well composed and fun shot. Great details and color.

@farmreporter Now that is going to be a very interesting task Wendy - just to be sure - will I put the same image 3 times in a single photo by combining the three or do I present it as 3 images? :)
July 29th, 2019  
The main reason for this challenge is that we as photographers tend to get into a rut where we 'see' things the same way - either as a strong foreground, as part of a composition, or part of the wide environment.
This will help you 'see' one object in all three ways. So, yes, three photos please!

@farmreporter Sounds good. Thanks! :)
