Very well seen shot, Cerys!
The sharpness and POV are perfect, and so are these soft colored birds. The colors of the birds give great contrast to the dark clue colored water in the BG. The rocks bring great mood into the capture.
Great composition!

Have a nice weekend.

thanks and regards,

Hi cerys,

This is a really nice shot, it has a lot of visually stimulating elements within the shot, but it mangages to pull it off.

i like the golden tones of the gannets and the rocks, set off by the turquoise of the sea, and the touch of red in their perch.

Hello Cerys,
A fine capture of two Gannets doing a bit of pair bonding at Bempton Cliffs. I like the pose, BG sea and composition with the limestone taken with excellent sharpness and DOF.
A more descriptive note about the Gannets at Bempton and how you took this would be nice.
Thanks and best regards,

Hi Cersys,

An very nice picture and good taken.
The new lens have you been brought well.
Good of sharpnesss with fine colours.


very nice image Cerys

I think its a little dark and i'd have removed the tail of the bird above as its a little distracting but apart from these minor points i'd be more than happy if i'd taken it myself.

Well done

What camera and lens do you use?

Hi Cerys, this a wonderfull shot, If I can, I choose useful. The clearness are perfect, the colors. A marvellous composition. Congratulations.
