A group of complaining ring-bill gulls. I liked the composition of the gulls with one coming in for a landing to join them.

Interesting scene, Peter. You have timed the photo very well just as another is landing to join the chorus. Sharp and good exposure... TFS
Best wishes,

Hi Peter

Nice compostion and muted colours.

TFS James

Hello Peter,
I didn't see that you have already posted a picture :-) I like this composition, POV and action caught. Exposure is very good too as this white color is not that easy to calibrate. I like the gullís attitudes. This is well done and well seen. Thanks,

Quite a chorus of gulls. The contrast between those standing their ground and the one leaving the scene is wonderful and adds a lot of activity to the frame. Well done.

Hi Peter,
It is a well composed shot of the gull with its landing gear down and the rest of the clan shouting the odds.Well done, hope to see more and TFS.

This is very nice capture of ring-bill gulls. one in the centre gave an interesting pose, opining bill. focus, POV and composition very nice.
