Pity there is NO HDR Switch image on this one to show how well the processing of movement was handled with the Gulls. Excellent image. Like the fact that the main subject matter ( Lighthouse) is on the right side of the image. Thanks for sharing Steve.

@digicam thanks Ed. I used the deghosting image that was -2. It’s a little noisy if you look really close. I took this bracket in June of 2011 so I wasn’t smart enough to up the iso and get some decent shutter speeds. I didn’t even think I was going to submit anything so I just sent this off my iPhone. I should be more careful and get the non HDR image up. I think most can appreciate the changes better.
