We have lots of seagull shots from each and every angle here on TE. Yet i think this is the POV missing in our seagull collection :) (Update : Sorry, seems like i'was wrong. See Robert's comment)
Bostancı Seaport - İstanbul. A seagull walking on the plexiglass roof of the seaport.
(Sorry for the mess on the glass!)

He he, lovely idea Selcuk
Good composition, the feeet are the obvious point of focus and these are placed beautifully.
Good clear shadow, good with detail in the glass.

An unusual POV indeed! Well seen!
Yet, as a reaction to your note, I have to say that I've seen a similar POV before, here, posted by azuri.... It's a dificult quest to try and find that unusual POV not yet ever seen in TE.... :-)
Still, nice effort! Well done and best regards!

This is really outstanding Selcuk, I've never seen anything like this before. I congratulate you on your originality.
Your inventive viewpoint has made this seagull almost unrecognisable; I like how the feet are the only immediately recognisable feature.
The bird sh*t on the glass is a good touch, this is obviously a favourite perch for these messy birds.

Very funny shot, great perspective, wanderful light and good eye for such scene.

Beautiful and to me (;o) original shot, Selcuk. Love the subtle pastel colors and the overall composition...

Very good - I didn't know what this was from the thumbnail! An original POV, unusual & inspiring. Very clever!

Merhaba Selçuk Abi,
Muhteşem bir fikir. Harika bir kompozisyon. Ellerine sağlık. Saygılarımla...

Great composition and so very-well noticed.
I really like this shot - could almost be a fat fish eating a seagull!

You have just right direction of light on this one. It shows the feet separately from the rest, and in different colour too.
And it seems that the roof is really necessary over there!

glad I have had my tea. Nice idea and good pov. I was struggling to work out what it was.

Great eye!!! I was very attracted by and curious to identified what it was all about...

Es tan sugerente como rara. Eso me encanta. No sé muy bien lo que es pero parece un pato sobre un plástico de techo... me encanta esta foto.
