This one was a result of the same opportunity that I explained here, when I posted the other image grabbed in the same few moments.
For me, this was about the sheep and its lambs set against that sky. The fact that the gull decided to join the picture was, as I think it turned out, a bonus. But your views on that are welcomed.
In acknowledgement of the many fine images posted up here by Fernando (kaskais), this one struck me as rather 'kaskais-esk'.
It's different (for me)! What do you think? Do you think I took enough detail out of the sky? Or too much?
PS - On this downsized version appearing in here, the haloing round the bird is much more extreme than on the original.
PPS - I think this is the first time I've ever made a 2:3 (4x6) ratio image. Don't particularly like it, but it was required for this one.
