Very cool..those gulls almost look like they are photoshopped! I could not read the EXIF...what shutter speed and aperture did you use? Love the overall composition including teh combination of colors!

This is a very cool shot of Nubble. Love the seagulls in the foreground they really make the image. So often pictures of Nubble have the power lines going out to it on the left side of the image and that really takes away from the ambiance.

Very true, but unless you want all your shots of Nubble to look the same (like this one, which is VERY cool, btw, then sometimes those power lines get in the way.

I went back last September and the only really different shots I got had the power lines in them. So I've been teaching myself how to use GIMP to erase them. Not easy when you've never really used any PP before other than irfanview.

Very nice shot

There's a very cool FREE plugin that will remove powerlines quick and easy.

Basically trace the powerline with a 'line' type tool and it will use some sort of algorithms to automate a healing brush tool use behind them.

It's pretty far out.

It's called wire worm.

CHeck it out here:http://www.vicanek.de/plugins/wireworm.htm

Notice the demo at the bottom where it completely removed the lion's cage intruding on the shot. That right there made me try it out.

It looks like it is a very cool plug-in, assuming one already owns photoshop. Not gonna happen for me, unfortunately.

I haven't tested it but any photo editing software which runs 32 bit and has plugin capabilities using .DLL files should work with it. I have heard quite a few people using other softwares and still utilizing plugin capabilities... Not sure which programs or software but its worth a shot for such a small download. Some plugins even run standalone, this one very well does as well, I havent tried it but quite a few I downloaded come with .exe files that let you alter the image without using external software to run it.

Thanks for all the kind comments-now about the gulls-the viewpoint for the light house has two levels-I was on the upper level-a woman on the lower level was feeding the gulls-must have been at least 50 of them-she had to dodge the droppings. To answer one of the questions-F8 @ 1/640 second-shot in "P" mode.
