[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Seagulls are great birds for practice in flight shots.
Same time you get interesting pictures too.
I like the dynamic of this one as well the depth given
by the blurred bird in the background.
Taken on New Year Day on the shore of Lake Ontario.

G'day Mario
I agree the seagulls are perfect fo practicing. And I also agree with the depth given by the blurred bird in the background. Nice use of thirds.
TFS Regards Paul

Hi Mario, this is a good shot of the 3 gulls. I agree, with you, I like the way you've used your depth of field too in blurring the rear bird. It's a nice perspective. You've done a nice tight crop on these guys too to present a good tight corner to corner composition. The detail is great.

Thanks, John

Bell'azione, ottimo scatto.

This is a very good picture!
They seem so serious. They look like a fighter squadron on the job :).
Good details and composition. I agree with you regarding DOF!
Congratulations and TFS!

Hello.. this is fantastic. GREAT time and the dynamics of this picture is truly strong. Good focus and color and the DOP is good too..

Fantastic capture! Nice POV, composition and DOF.

Hello Mario,
I like this great POV, composition and action caught. They are impressive by going directly to you. Details, exposure and this sky are just beautiful! I also love those tones fo colors. Great handheld shot :) Well done and TFS,
PS We almost have the same equipment; you have the 30-Dů I bought my 20-D in December 2005 and a few weeks later the 30-D was releasedů grrr

Hi Mario,
It is a very good in flight, Mario.
I do like your image...
I share Claudine's critique (for once;-)

Howdy Mario,

The face on the foremost gull reminds me of both a seal or a mink, less the beak of course. This is a very nice compo: the three birds all parallel to the NE - SW diagonal. Tfs, Jay
