Une superbe photo, l'effet est très particulier et original. On dirait même une prise venant d'une bande dessiné. J'aime beaucoup l'effet trois dimentions, mouettes à l'avant plan, bateaux sombre au centre et ville éclairé par un soleil couchant éblouissant. L'éclairage par le flash est aussi très spécial. Et en plus la pose et l'action des mouettes sont parfaites. À mon avis, une des meilleure photo sur ce site.

FÉLICITATION ! je l'envoi tout droit à mes favorite.

Merci pour l'envoi.

Great shot Pedro, never thought the flashlight can make your shot look artistic. :) Fantastic captured, well done, thanks for sharing

What a wonderful photo! It has a surreal quality to it, reminds me of a Salvador Dali painting. It's great the way the birds are not too bright even though you used the flash. Well done.

Wow! Strange, different and unusual but very, very cool! This is very nice and I absolutely love the pose of the right Gull. Good frozen action. Thanks for showing us something different Pedro.


Wow this is good! Excellent pov and detail.
The lighting is amazing, great use of flash.
They look like they're coming in quite close, did they land on your head?
Seriously, a stunning shot. Thank you for posting.

This is a very dramatic shot Pedro. I love the contrast between the birds and the rest of the scene. The red poster is a bit distracting but this is a case of split second choices...I'm glad you pressed the shutter! The flash picks the birds out from the BG and makes them look like they are hurtling straight towards you. Your DOF is excellent and the birds are pin sharp. It's a really unusual and very creative shot. I love it :)

Great action shot!
Excellent captured,good lighting.

Bonjour Pedro, mes félicitation pour cette photo irréelle. Comment est il possible d'être à 2 m des oiseaux et avoir une telle profondeur de champ !! C'est superbe, Didier.

Superb shot Pedro!
The mood here is great, perfect DOF, POV and composition, excellent details.
I love this BG and colours.
Really great shot.

Hi Pedro.
This is such a cool shot. Love the effect of the flash on the birds and the dark background. It really pulls the attention on the birds. Great shot!

Pedro, This shot has great impact! Reminds me of Alfred Hitchcocks "The Birds" because they seem to be coming after ya! Especially the gull right with beak open...Excellent details, sharpness & the flash effect makes the shot here against the dusk sky. Very well done!

Hi Pedro,
A great shot. I think with that lens you mst have been very close to these birds! I really like the birds framed against the boat masts, very nice shot.

Hi Pedro
super action
Well done

Hi Pedro ,
