We meet at the LZ
What do I think of this image? Well I really like the technicals like focus and exposure and I really love the gulls, but the composition it too busy for my taste. The gulls get lost in all the clutter and my eye keeps getting distracted . I would love to see some Black-headed Gulls in a simpler composition.

Nice shot Pieter
the details of the Gulls is fantastic.
The only thing I personally am unsure of is all the distracting points elsewhere in the photo.
Other than that, this is a great shot
Thanks for posting

I like this photo Pieter. The birds on the wall make a nice composition. Maybe you shold have crop the orange box in the left side. Good colours and sharpness.

What an intreresting pose!
Great photo. I love the details of gulls.
I must agree with Lesley, the car and the red box are disturbing.
Gulld are really nice.
Never assume we will know what the subject is. Remeber this is a global audience and chocolate-headed gulls don't occur everywhere.
As the others have said, nice detail on the lead gull, but its messy, to many overlapping elements and the red box on the left and red flowers on the right are horrible.
Sorry to be severe, but you asked.

Pieter, I like the shot. Sometimes I think I really have to learn about photography; I'm telling you this because the scenario was not distubing for me. But, as I said, I'm still a beginner in photography. Therefore, don't take my comments too seriously.
Excellent sharpness, great POV and beautiful birds.

Pieter, I have to disagree with the others about it being too busy. I like the repetition of the red in the plastic box, gulls' feet and the flowers on the far bank. Really great focus and excellent capture!
