Gull Waiting on the Bench
Lens: DA 55-30 PLM Camera: KP Photo Location: Lincolnville beach, Maine ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/800s Aperture: F6.3

Took two lenses down to the beach and took some BIF with my FA 77 limited and used my 55-300 PLM to catch the same gull on a bench in front of a closed lobster restaurant. I was very happy that even with the gull in front of a white wall and a snowbank that there is still some nice contrast between the bird and the background. BIF shots at in the Prime, Prime, Everywhere a Prime thread under lenses.

The first one, especially, is very nice - pleasant and relaxing.
