Monkey Mia is very famous for it's dolphins which visit the beach every morning. But they're not the only ones as you can see.

Bossy bird, jabbering for all to hear! Good composition Toni, always hard to photograph white birds. TFS.

This one has plenty to say, but by the look of the gulls, they are not interested. They just want to do their own thing. Nice capture of this 'loud mouth'. Well done. TFS

Hello Antonio and Happy Easter! Nice shot with good sharpness and details..You did well with bright sunlight and all that white. TFS!

Antonio, the shot is very and it's very nice too. Great composition, title and pov.

Maybe, a little bit of unsharp mask would be nice.

Hmmm, which bird does not belong?
Well done with this capture and composition.

Great scene Antonio! Looks like armada of old sailships. Superb pose and colour of the water.

Personal assessment of the photo: great.
Good visual impact.
Aptness of the photo for the site: excellent.
Personal assessment of the note: good.
Thanks Antonio.
p.s.: Pour le WS, j'ai tout simplement fait un mirroir horizontal pour vérifier si l'impact visuel était meilleur ainsi.
Joyeuses Pâques!

Great shot Antonio, just wish the seagull in the rear was swimming between the pelicans jaws, now that would have been a capture.
Back to the critique, great details and I love the colour of the water.
Couldn't resist doing a workshop, hope you don't mind.
Thanks for sharing.

Vraiment sympa ce cliché ! j'aime la pose du volatile bec ouvert ;-) La luminosité aussi est agréable.

très expressif et belle lumière.

my favorite waiting big hunt and other birds must wait long time

I really like pelicans, and this is a great shot. A lot of character, well composed. The only improvement I can think of is if the DOF had been a little shallower, bluring out the rear gull a bit more.

Nicely done!

Très joli ce pélican ! Le cadrage est un peu serré à mon goût, mais les couleurs de la mer font un arrière-plan parfait !
