My pleasure : )

Well, so as to do more justice to the subject and torelivethe image from having a centralquality I dida littlecropping whilecaringto preserve the essentials. Then I selected the trees at the PS to give them a little bit 'nikon' look:GFinally I applied a slight noise reduction just in case... and to reduce the file size!!

Eh, the result attainedwithin a few minutesmay notbe a day and night difference but it was a joy for me to play around this already beautiful and inspiring shot with the far sighted seagull : )

bahadir, thanks for you critique. i really appreciate it.

when you said relive the image from central qualities, is having central qualities to subjects bad?

when you refer to the subjet, is it alcatraz, sea gull, or alcatraz + sea gull?

would you say i'm somewhat trigger-happy with saturation? is there such thing as correct saturation or is it a preference?

Thanks for your appreciation : ) My responds will be quite simple as follows..

In the first place,attainingthebalance ina picturethrough composition ofmasses and coloursrather than putting the subject right in the center of the framewould make more favour to thebeholder's aestheticalexpectation, IMO.

About the subject issue, though consisting several objects, relying on the title of your photo also, the subjectof this photo appears to be the rocky island, IMHO!

About saturation issue, although they say matters of taste cannot be discussed, I wouldn't prefer dark tonesveiling the true nature ofthe objects. I hope youhaven't been offended bythe term nikon look. Actually,I am more of a Canon guywho hashad the Powershot models (A510 & S70) so far and has been very happy about them. Even the DSLR camera once I borrowed from a friend was the Digital Rebel!Nevertheless, Iam not sure for my next to be DSLR( unless I find a sponsor forthe 20D and a decent wide angle lensother than the kit lens!!:G)
