Here is one that was submitted to me way back on December 20th 2009! It was sent in by Nadja Niemann and I think it is a beautiful image. This was shot with a Canon 20D and 50 1.8 Lens. You can see more at her blog HERE. Thanks so much Nadja! Very cool image.

Hi Steve. Thanks for great job with your website! I’m amateur photographer from Poland. My photos are inspired by my hometown – Krakow, with its dark, dreamy and magic atmosphere and two muses: my wife […]
I am sorry to have mistaken you as the filthy street paddling pigeons. For the distance you have traveled you as magnificent as you can be as a creature.
Thank you Roberto!
There are many many more on my flickr account.
Nadja, This image is the kind that one will remember for a long time. Hard to believe you used such a short lens, congrats!
I think the seagull would feel pretty insulted by that, Eddie… 🙂
I want to say “Hello Mr. Pigeon!”
Nice capture Nadja … so many cameras, so many choices, so little time …..
Oh thank you so much Emily and Lucy!
So Lucy, – I used to use the 20D – and this shot was taken on the last day I used it properly as my main camera. The next day I got the 5D Mark 2 with the 24-105 kit lens.
My 50mm 1.8 is my favourite… and a friend is so kind to lend his 50mm 1.2 to me these days, and it will be very hard to return it in a few days time.
My 10-22 EF-S lens rocks as well – incredibly inspiring lens! – , but won’t fit the new 5D body. So sometimes I have to take both bodies.
And I have the 28-80mm, which I rarely use meanwhile. (I prefer the 24-105mm lens…)
Nadja i really like your seagull shot, his expression is so good.
Your blog is very nice to look at too. Can i ask, what other cameras and lenses do you use?
Nadja, the image is intriguing – not quite seen an expression like that before on a seagull. Very nicely captured. Enjoyed the blog as well.
