Northern Gannets

We went to RSPB Bempton Cliffs a week or two back and got a few more pics of northern gannets.  I have loads of images of these magnificent birds so I didn’t bother posting them until, that is, today when I was playing with Lightroom.  Now, I don’t normally play too much with my images but I found myself experimenting in the post-crop vignetting department and decided to move all the sliders to see what happened.  This was the result.  The birds are unchanged but the background, which was mostly sky, has gone.  I like the effect and I think the colour of the birds enhances the overall picture.  If you’re looking, let me know what you think…
