Default Good Sense : Seagull Playing With Wind In A Cloudy Afternoon

I have taken this picture on a beach in a windy , cloudy afternoon.

This seagull was playing with wind.

I initially though to clone stamp the seagull and put it in the top-righ rule of thirds corner, so as to leave space in front of him.

I have tryed but in the end I preferred to leave it in this position, with the clouds and wind on his back.

The question (and the challenge) is : can u feel the wind ?



P.S. :
- selection of seagull
- inverse selection
- manual level correction
- some big soft burn tool brushstokes on the clouds
- inverse selection
- manual level correction

I can hear it more than feel it. And I can hear the seagull and his unseen friends. And is that the crash of water against a rock? What do I hear underneath it all? The silence of being miles from civilization. Excellent job!

I don't feel the wind. What I do feel is the exiliration of jumping off the high dive at a pool, arms spread just so. The feeling of weightlessness just before you fall screaming into the water.
This picture is definitely poster worthy.

Great photo, Sergio! It looks like you've touched well on the senses because, so far, each person is responding differently. It's hitting me in the hearing part of my brain, but it's not the wind I'm listening to--it's the call of a seagull.

Il Sergio, posso sentire il fischio del vento su delle ali e sente le chiamate degli altri uccelli. Me d un senso di che volo solitario . forse come un aquilone. Non parlo l'italiano ma uso il traduttore facile quattro. Questo lascia per che io battere a macchina in Inglese e traduce a molte altre lingue.

Wow. Manana's about it for me. I can say "where is the bathroom?" in Chinese, but that's not very useful here. I'm impressed, DX!

I travel a lot doing missionary work in brazil, and Mexico. I go on the trips for the Louisiana Baptist Convention and it comes in handy on my laptop.
