Many thanks go to everyone who did take a look at and those who did wright a critique to my previous uploads. Much appreciated.

These gulls seem to have quite a load conversation together about everything and nothing :)

Hi Harry,
Deze mag er ook zijn hoor! Mooi tafereel en prachtig vastgelegd. Mooie bonte kleuren en lekker scherp. Prachig objectief die f/300, de kwaliteit spat er van af!
Je ziet, dat niet alleen het landschap in Noorwegen fotogeniek is.
Groet, Ruud

Hi Harry,
Very well done. The technical aspects of the photo are excellent. Your timing caught an interesting behavior. I can't decide if they are fighting or mating.

hello Harry

c'est une très belle photo d'action (comme j'aime beaucoup)
très bien focusé, de superbes détails de ces oiseaux
qui sortent très bien de l'arrière-plan mais ce que j'aimes
le plus de ta photo c'est qu'elle a était prise au bon moment
quand les deux goélands ont leurs becs ouvert

bravo et merci pour cette superbe photo

Hi Harry,
Very good action shot. The quality of he picture is impressive. Colors and clarity of details are very, very good. Thanks for sharing this beautiful pick.
Regards, Mario.

Hi Harry
Great action shot with extreme sharpness and great blue sea. Again perfect exposure of the white plumage

Definitely a nice clear shot. The positioning of these two is excellent in my eyes.Appears to be a flash used that cast the shadow on the neck of the one behind or you just had some really good white light.

Hello Harry,
this is a picture with great interaction between the birds. I'll put my money on the black backed gull. Nice deep colours.
Regards, Jacob

Hi Harry,
Wonderful shot. You froze these two birds in action beautifully. The image is very sharp and colors are vivid. TFS,

Excellent action shot with great details, Harry!

Helo Harry , excellent details and sharpness , very good saturated colors , also good action capture photo , TFS.

I love the sharpness and the saturated colours. It really says "Gull."

Hi Harry,
Very good image. Sharpness is amazing especially towards an action photo. Must be a great lens your 300 or is it the sensor?
Anyway well done.
Another superb one...

Harry, primero muchas gracias por tus comentarios, soy bastante nuevo en fotografía y cada día se aprende. Estoy de acuerdo con tus opiniones. A veces pasa que estas trabajando en macro y ves una escena a lo lejos y disparas sin cambiar f jeje
Tu fotografía excelente , sobre todo en nitidez y enfoque ( ese nikon AF-I soberbio______). La luz casi mejor que la real jajaja y el agua perfecta. Gran expresión de las aves. Una fotografía para enmarcar o publicar en buenas revistas de fotos. Saludos desde España: J. Ignasi Tejedor

Hello Harry.

Excellent picture, nice composition and colors.

Jose Luis.
