Backgrounds (Three Photographs)

The gull is certainly impressive but this is an article about backgrounds. These three shots of the same bird against three different backgrounds help to explain a couple of things. Books and articles on bird photography always suggests the cleanest background is best, an ideal that is hard to get. What we want is an interesting and a complimentary background. The first is as close as I could getfrom my vantage point of a clear background. The second shot gives a more textured but essentially clear background. The third makes the background part of the photographic subject, and it‘s my choice as it is more of an artistic photograph than the first two that are more birding photos. Your view may differ.
