[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I love seaguls even though people call them names.
Everything from flying racoons to sh*t hawks.
I went and "played" at the beach at sunset last night in order to add the bird's sihouettes to the image.
This is one of quite a few that impressed me.
Any tips for achieving better results for clarity and reds in the sky would be appreciated.

could use some sharpening but the colors and composition are great. the ripples in the water are nice as is the setting sun.

lovely image.....you did capture the moment very well, very nice and balanced composition.
The sunset tone is so natural...I love it!

The world would be a lot messier place if not for seagulls. Ivar Haglund, the famous Seattle restauranteur, loved these birds and erected a monument to them outside his Ivar's Acres of Clams (not to be confused with the fast-food chain of the same name, also founded by Ivar) on Seattle's waterfront.

Ivar's, the fast-food chain, is nothing at all like the fabulous Ivar's restaurants located in Seattle, by the way.

Hi Kelley,
Very aesthetic image! Great colors of the sunset. Crisp water surface. Seaguls adds great ornaments to this scenic landscape. Superb shot.

hello Kelley
here is beautiful sunset photo with dynamic composition. point of view, colours, lighting-silhouettes and reflections are great

Wonderful collection of seagulls Kelley!
Nice lighting, composition and depth of field.


Hello Kelley
beautiful photo and excellent game of lights. The soft tonalities of the colors have very fixed the moment of the release with optimal bird's silhouettes.

Very aesthetic image! Great colors of the sunset.

Hi Kelley ,
So nice seascape.
I like this warm colours.

Kind regards

Hi Kelley. As far as pictures go, this makes a strong statement. You really captured the moment as good as you'll get I believe. Just an excellent mood and moment. It's a pleasure to see this. Like you say; seagulls get a bum rap. TFS Trevor
