Thanks Guy! I actually cropped this one completely different than I normally would have done for one of my NYIP assignments. I did like the end results though! I needed a picture emphasizing the subject through placement - upfront (making him larger than life) and off in the thirds. The original pic had the entire front gull in it and another gull in the background above him. #867935
