[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As snow clouds come in from the ocean, a lone Herring Gull flies northwards to its sleeping place - the beams of light filtering through the clouds are a promise of clear weather for the coast, and of snow for elevations above 4000 feet. The waves churn just a bit.....

Hi Feather

The notes started of soooo well then suddenly...'pop'. The dream were terminated and only the seagull was left behind to continue with its journey to an unknown destination. I was sorry it was over so quickly. It had all the makings of a wonderful voyage in fantasy.

Although not perfectly divided into 1/3 areas on the horizontal plane it came close enough as 3 distinct zones are visible. The darkish ocean covering untold beauty underneath, the shadowy yet light fringed clouds which also contains the beautiful warm rays of the sun that penetrates the darkness, and the clear blue sky above. A lovely composition with stunning colours, clear details, and spot-on exposure levels.

If I may just mention 2 small nits (IMHO) it will be the horizon dropping of ever so slightly to the left and the fact that the photo might be a little on the small size. Although many might argue that 640x480 pixels are quite sufficient, I believe if you got it – show it. This is a lovely photo and it’s worth it to be shown at the maximum permissible size.

Very well done and TFS.
