It was one cloudy day, yesterday. Cloudy and cold. I returned from my walk with the fingers almost frozen. Close to my home there is a park with two ponds. (See a general view of one of the two pounds taken this morning). Each autumn these ponds are emptied to make place for skating rinks. All that grew during the summer finds confined in a large water puddle pool… and that becomes a feast for the seagulls (immature indivuals) which gathers there.

Luc, Group Photo!! Very nice action-shot with great interest! I can almost hear them squakin"!! I'll check back when constuction is completed ;-)

Good shot on the action, and nice preservation of the colors. A greater DOF owuld have sorted the back two guls as well, but other than that it good. Thanks for posting.

Excellente réunion, elles en ont des choses à se dire. A priori il semble que ce sont des jeunes?
Bravo pour l'instantané.

This is such a beautiful picture Luc. I particularly liked the one in the centre. It is looking majestic!

Good action Luc.
Very nice composition with good details.
The DOF is good for this picture, I like it very much.
Well done.

Hermosa captura con aación incluida.
Gran agudeza sobre las aves en primer plano, con excelentes detalles y eleccion de los valores de exposicion.
Buen DOF y encuadre... bien hecho.

Belle capture avec action incluse.
Une grande acuité sur les oiseaux en premier plan, avec des détails excellents et de l'élection des valeurs d'exposition.
Bon DOF et encadrez... bien fait.

La position de toutes ces mouettes et les remous dans l'eau sont très évocatifs de leur excitation. Très bien pris sur le vif. La combinaison des 3 sujets d'avant-plan est très esthétique. Belle envolée à droite, avec juste ce qu'il faut de flou en bout d'aile. Toute l'action tourne autour du sujet central. Très belle composition.

Who is the chairman? I like this shot and the fact that there is chaos around the one in the middle, but he is clear and not part of the commotion.

Very nice capture.

Thanks for posting

I love this. Luc. the tones are pleasant and the action contrasing. Nice effects. Great shot.

What a confused mass of birds! I think you did well to make a composition from this. I do find my eye jumping around, but everywhere it jumps to there is some detail or action and i like that. Very good work, well done Luc.
