  2. Funny. I like this and have taken similar images, but I’m not sure what to say about it. It just is – a picture of working farm life, a bit idyllic, a nice contrast with the gulls following the tractor and a light mist in the background.

  3. A classic but definitely not a cliche. The latter is achieved by not relying on the usual ‘cloud’ of gulls but instead looking at the total composition, particularly the trees. The light is a central feature in a restrained but very English way and that allows greens to be, seemingly, rendered very accurately. This is a great shot of contemporary farming.

  4. A well timed and composed shot Rex, with a very complimentary crop.

  5. Second that sentiment on timing and composition. Is this a shot of rural life, or a wildlife shot? For me, very much the latter – a good mix of gull positions to really show off their behaviour here. Nice how the slight mist causes the background to fade away, thus highlighting the action.

  6. Agree with all compliments above. One of your best bird photos. ;-) I think that the farmer’s look backwards is very important to making this work so beautifully. And that picturesque tree frames the tractor perfectly.
