These gulls sat on a fence by the harbour in a small fishingvillage 60 kilometers north of Valparaiso in Chile... At the harbour was also a lot of pelicans and a lot of pretty plants...

Hi Ina,
A great shot. There is always someone who wants to be different.
Good job including the frame.

Well, Ina, this photo is a real, a real good one, because of the DOF, Focus, Composition, angle,Frame. It is very pleasant to look at and stay on it.TFS.
There is a point of humor caused by the gulls.

Graphical shot with all these gulls sat with the same pose. Very good composition, but not very sharp and clear.

I guess you have all your ducks(gulls)in a row, Ina! Great composition, thank you for sharing it.

This is a unique photo Ina. Very good Dof with excellent composition. Suffering a bit of noise but can be removed by noise filtering programs easily.
Very well done.

Hello Ina, this is a great line up of the Gulls. You captured them so well. You wouldn't see them standing in a line like this very often. So WELL DONE!

Very nice one Ina,
I like the fantastic composition,The depth in it is nice, I see something an the sharpness, but I dont know what exactly. But even, I like the good job,
gr. Jaap

Impressing composition, brilliant I should say...With better resolution and sharpness, would be a good canditate for a cover shot. Congrats !

What a wonderful composition! You've got a good eye.
I like it.

You spotted this one well and chose the right DOF to bring out the picture. Lovely shot Ina and unusual. Your composition is great. The image is a bit noisy but you could use noise reduction software like NeatImage to deal with that. I particularly like your exposure, DOF and composition. Thanks for posting it :)

Nice shot Ina!
Pity that the quality isn't good (whole photo is a bit noisy), but the rest is great. Perfect POV and composition.
I like it very much.
Well done!

Excellent and funny composition !

Really great subject and composition. Shame about the noise in the image, though.

Hello Ina,

I like the composition on this one. The row of Gulls seems to be endless. :) Unfortunately the whites are too bright, you overexposed them. Next time you could try to tune the exposurevalue a few steps down or maybe you could have rescued the whites by tuning the whitebalance. Anyway, nice post!
