Hello Saeed,
A fine action shot of a pair of Black-headed Gulls in winter plumage set in an excellent composition. The landing gull is captured in a fine frozen moment while the other watches taken from a fine POV with great sharpness and lighting.
Thanks and have a good week,

Hi Saeed!

I'm so glad to see you posting again. And you surprise me with a picture of birds. I like the contrast between the bird in action and the one already resting. It's funny how the latter seems to observe the landing attempt of the former. This is well seen. The diagonal rope adds to the quality of the composition although it is a little bit too important.

Kind regards

Good action shot - the bird is coming into land really well, and you show that too.
I like how the other bird is watching his progress too -
Well done Saeed

Hello Saeed,
Since you have stopped posting again, I had to go back to this lovely picture I had missed in May.
The picture is very well captured with one of the Gulls ready to land on the cable. It is a sharp action shot.
Thanks for sharing it and also for your kind words on my new picture.

very nice scene of the "arrival" of this guy

very nice and funny shot



Hi Saeed,
Simple yet nice action shot, perfect image of the arrival. With a little faster shutter the wings wouldn't have been so blurry, but otherwise great visual impact. Tfs.
Friendly regards, László
