Excellent capture of this couple!
I like so much your POV and the position of each gull into the frame.
I think it's very good the composition made with the stone, the water and the sky at the background.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

I really like this John. Great composition with the pose of the two gulls and the water splashing against the rocks. The DOF is excellent and the colors are very natural looking for a bright sunny day.
i think you clicked at the right time the breaking surf adds to the static composition of the birds:)

the splash of water really adds to the whole 'shoreline' feel to this shot. I find the shape of their beaks quite intriguing too. Nice light and colours, great work.

Pleasant composition, where you make use of the full tele!
The yellow beaks and legs really stnd out, and the blurry surf tells about the maritime environment...
Well composed, attractive image!

Thanks for dropping by and writing your critique on my recent landscape picture, John.
You have given an amusing caption to your picture of two Pacific Gulls facing each other.
This is a beautiful capture of the birds with the sea spray forming an impressive background.

This is indeed a splendid capture and the title couldn't ba any better :))
What a terrific pose from the one to the left ;)
Other than that, i really like the somposition here as well as the terrific BG that you managed to catch - with the wave splash - giving a lot of action to the scene.
Lovely colors and nice sharp details, too.
Bravo and TFS

Hi John. I like the way this is composed. Very natural and the birds are well arranged in your crop. I admire the research you do to identify so much of our flora and fauna. Good notes on how this fine result was achieved. TFS. Murray.

Buena expresión de las aves, aunque para mi lo mejor es la composición junto con los contrastes roca-agua que crean un conjunto vivo y diferente. Saludos.
Is there courtship activity here John? Either that or a pecking order eh! I really like the way you also included a foaming background! Tfs, Jay
