Hi Soumen.
I like timing a lot and nice pose of the seagull. Details of all scene are also perfect and reflections of sunlight on the water surface are also very attractive. TFS and kind wishes.

Hello Soumen

Photo shot with excellent timing, because that
pose of the gull over the water and the fish
on his beak, the great POV at its level with
the great DOF, + that pose of the gull and
the waves adds dynamism to the photo, TFS


Hello Soumen,
Very nice capture, reflection of the sky is nice,
regarding composition it is dead center. can use rule of third.
best wishes,

Intrigant reflection and light Soumen! well done.


Beautiful photo Soumen! Very good timing, wonderful lighting and good sharpness.

Hi Soumen,

The bird is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the seagull with his meal. The good luminosity is making the colours of the water to shine. Have a nice day.

Hello Soumen
nice view of the bird in good colors. The natural setting gives a good presentation with seawater reflects.
I like the way it opens its wings, very dynamic.
