[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
another ocean view.. I know, but arent they pretty and inspiring!!! I could just stare at the ocean all day!

This was taken in Papamoa, in front is the Pacific Ocean! I loved seeing those seagulls flying away, I took few shots and this one came out the best, I liked the positions of their wings, very different from the one by itself on the right!

Have a nice day/night!


EDIT: I have posted in the workshop a new version of this photo, taking notes of the critiques from Niek (suntoucher).

I like colors and composition.

Hi LuDivine,
The mood captured in this photo is wonderful. The composition with the island positioned on the right 1/3 axis is good. However the horizon isn't running straight. This is really a necessity with seacape photography. It might also be better to have to horizon less centered. The birds to add a lot to the photo. I am not so sure what happend on the right edge of the photo. It seems you missed a part in your PP work.

Hi LuDivine,

I am it entirely once with the criticism of Suntoucher. But the mood is indeed wonderful. Only I find the photo a bit to dark. POV and BG are oké. Regards and TFS Bob

Hi LuDivine

the workshop version is significantly better, well done.
The re-worked composition with a straight horizon is very nice. the gulls really add to the shot. Seascapes can be very soothing, this one is.
