A low key photograph of a Black Headed Gull and its reflection.
Metered using Centre Weighted metering pattern with an exposure compensation of -2, I wanted the dark background to remain near black and not to blow the highlights of the birds feathers. The lens was mounted on a gimbal type head and carbon fibre tripod. The biggest problem to overcome was being patient enough to isolate one bird from the flock, as there were in the region of 100 birds in the pond where this shot was made.
