Head to the Med

Despite the grey overcast conditions at Southend-on-Sea yesterday I used the poor light to my advantage for once. At the end of pier a few Mediterranean Gulls were sitting nicely on the handrails and nice and close to, so I set the camera up to overexpose the image and blow the whites so they bended into the background and up the ISO for a more artistic image.

Both images set at F5.6


  1. Wow. First pic is stunning. Never seen that done before.

  2. Cheers Brian and thanks for taking the time to add the comment.
