What ?
Salut Alin,
intrebarea mea este ... ce sa manince. Pregatiti ... pregatit, dar ... ce. Pe foametea asta.. nu mai arunca nimeni nimic. Sunt politicienii pregatiti sa manince inca 5 ani bine mersi din munca altora. Parca sunt alegeri, sau?
Compozitia este frumoasa, imi place.
O duminica placuta,

Una toma clásica. Realismo en los colores y buen encuadre.
Saludos y buen Domingo Alin: Josep Ignasi.

Hi Alin.
I know this species and have met them a lot in our sea shore. You have taken a nice shot. Reproduction of colouration and feathers of gull are exceptional. I also like DOF and perfect details of the image. TFS and all the best.

Hello Alin,
a beautiful picture of Larus michahellis taken from a good POV with fine detail and splendid natural colours in a nice composition
Best regards

Hi Alin,

A superb closeup capture of the seagull with nice details! The textures on the wings of the bird, are wonderful. I like the sharpness and POV here with great natural colors.

best regards,

I guess seagulls are all over the planet, eating fries and McDo's! Good shot, Alin, I like the whole view of the bird and its nice yellow feet. Its pose shows the character of the bird! Thank you,

Hi alin,
simple shot but very sharp. the pose by the gull is very special, quiet and calm.
well presented composition.


Hello Alin,

Great capture.
Lighting and definition are excellent.
Good composition.

Hello Alin,
Nice shot of this gull. Fine details are clearly present. Very well done.

Hi Alin,

Beautiful capture of this cute gull in a fine pose with wonderful POV/DOF, neat details and delightful composition.
TFS and have a nice day!


hi Alin.. an excellent shot ... clear.. sharp.. about POV, I think it would have been better if you had tried an eye-level shot, yourself sitting down or lying down... Its only my suggestion... not taking anything away from you.. regards, Biju

Hi Alin,

The subject is well framed. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the seagull. It is clear and precise. The luminosity has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.


Hi Alin,

Very nice capture of this sea gull. Good focus and sharp image. Nice to see the eye contact. Very well done.

It's a lovely gull, Alin,
amazing to see that eye with the red parts around.
I don't like their skirl, they are loud and always like to have what you are eating at the moment ;-)

O captura de exceptie acest pescarus!
Culori si detalii perfecte!

hello Alin
nice picture of this social gull, with fine colors and nice details!
keep photographing! TFS

Hello Alin!

I thing it's romanian gull - species I've never seen in my country - Baltic see is too cold for them. Great shot, anyway POV could be little lower


hello Alin

excellent close-up photo of this Gull that like all other gulls his asking after food !
fine focus to the bird with excellent sharpness and details of its plumage, TFS


Hello Alin.

Thank you for that picture.

The composition and point of view are very excellent.

With your authorization, a small critic : It seems that the contrast should have be better and the sharpness also should have be better.

Anyway, this is an interesting and beautiful photo.

Thank you for the sharing.

See you soon on treknature for other pictures.

All the best.


Buna Alin,
Nice minimalistic shot of Larus michaelis, great sharpness, POV and natural colors. Maybe Philippe (amanengone) is right about the too few contrast, but the image is pleasant this way, too. Congrats and tfs.
Friendly regards, László
