Photographer's Note


On 07-07-07 (nice date!) I went fishing on sea, therefore we woke up at 5 o'clock..ooch that was early! We drove from Amsterdam to Den Oever, which is located in the north of province Noord(North)-Holland.
This day, the fishes did not want to bite..due to strong wind and heavy streams..probably. Well, atleast those elements were well present!
On the way back gulls accompanied our ship. I attached my telelens on my camera and tried to catch one nearby. It seems this one has more luck in a few minutes than we had in hours with 14 people!
The photo is taken on what's called "De Waddenzee"
I liked this result the just catched a fish!
Unfortunately not tack-sharp (due to movement) but hope you like it.

[Photo technical details]
RAW @ ISO 250, 300mm, F5.6, 1/500th, EV +1.3, Spotmetering, continuous AF.

[PP in RAW @ PS CS2]
* slightly changed WB, exposure, saturation and contrast while importing.
* Strong crop
* Selectively added contrast
* Selective sharpening with USM and Smart Sharpen.
* Added simple border

Now I might be a bit too magenta..
I didn't edit it on my own PC, maybe it's due to that!
Well, let's see what you think about it!

Well it's simple, but I hope you like it!
Have a nice sunday.
