Daily Deviation

Given 2006-04-25
The Rock by =sputnikpixel is a clever capture of Seagull on the backdrop of Alcatraz. The awesome composition and the contrast of the foreground against the background make this shot stand out for me. ( Suggested by ffmdotcom and Featured by hesitation )

The atmosphere is perfect, the composition is great, and it's wonderful that you had the good fortune of spotting this when a bird was posed in the shot.

Sweet! I thought I recognized Alcatraz. (Bay Area resident.) :D
I think this really exemplifies San Francisco....Seagull...fog...prison (joke). Really, it does contain the overlying qualities of S.F. Good job. :)

It's amazing that there is mist over Alcatraz but none on the ocean in the foreground.

Way cool!

Yes this place has some history to tell. The audio-tour you can do there is quite interesting and atmospheric.

Beautiful shot! Alcatraz has been one of my favorite subjects for many years now...too bad their lack of forethought practically destroyed the great prison.

I'm not agree with lances' comment. The shot wouldn't be same without the bird.
Very nice depth. Well deserved DD :thumbsup:
