Ciao Pierre, great capture of lovely gull in nice pose, beautiful reflections, fine details, excellent sharpness and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Pierre,
Ring is well visible on Gull's bill. Well captured if we talk on its color, details and exposure on white plumage. Tight crop giving space in front would have been more attractive rather than heart of the frame, in my humble opinion.
Thanks for sharing,

  • Great

Hello Pierre,
I don't remember ever seeing a photo of a gull in this type of environment which is usually reserved for shore birds. I like the cynical look it has on its face, almost like a coyote as it sheepishly walks up to a kill. Beautiful color and very good exposure considering the harsh lighting you had to deal with. The only negative in my opinion is placing your subject in the center of the frame.

Salut Pierre

Excellent timing pour prendre la photo, la pose de ce goéland,
ton POV et le cadrage au même niveau donnent du dynamisme à l'image, TFS
