Excellent composition Tim.
The seagull is a great added bonus.
I love the contrast of textures captured.

The sand looks so smooth and silky against the rough rocks.
Well seen and captured.

This is a lovely piece of work, to catch the seagull like this is amazing. This part of the beach looks like a good place for some sunrise/sunset images, very atmospheric!!!

Hi Tim, your photos are getting better each time. What PP software are you using?
The colours here stand out real well. The reflections look quite blue. And the seagull - well he makes it look even better.
Well done

Great work; very good exposure! It gives a feeling I fly together with the seagull.

Salut Tim

Belle prise de vue, cet oiseau en plein vol... J'Adore.


Great light and metalic looking sand!
Is the seagul really there or is it cloned in?
Beautiful landscape and I love the placement of rocks on either side of you.
well done,

this is outstanding
the seagul is great
and the colours are amazing

Yo Tim,
Each of your capture is unique and this one is yet another one, I like how you have framed it between the two rock and kept the distiction of waters from horizon! and how did you managed to call the seagull, that is what I would like to know:)
Most excellent in time and great stop-action...and on and on...

Hello Tim

Hi Tim,
A fabulous shot--catching the gull is amazing. I love the color of the water--the same as the growth on the rocks. Great detail in the foreground, and the trickle of water makes it perfect.

Very nice picture with grear colours and mood. I like it.

I have seen more nice shots in your gallery, so I will be back.

Best regards,


Good timing with the gull floating above caught in mid-flight coasting. Well done!


Excellent and incredible, lovely colors and compo.

Great scene Tim! Colours, compostion POV are all great and the sea gull adds the final touch. Well done! Cheers, Pat.

Beautiful shot of a magnificent location...
Blue tones of the beach touching the blues of the sea and sky are really charming.
The detail of the seagull also adds a bit more...

Superbe composition. Je suppose que tu utilises un logiciel de retouche. Comment as-tu ajouté la mouette? Si elle provient d'une autre photo, l'as-tu découpée ou l'as-tu fondue dans le ciel existant? Je suis curieux de connaître ta technique!!

Great shot, Tim.
Beautiful - captured very well. Great light and colours.
I like it!
Well done!
Regards, Krzysztof.

Damn Tim I just love this image! Full of character and movement....I'm waiting for the seagull to flap its wings! Well done! It reminds me of my own seagull I did with photoshop...dont know whether you have seen it

the presence of the bird in flight adds life to the scene. color and sharpness r tops. kudos!

Hi Tim, wonderful capture of seagull and beach, both very sharp in focus, seagull seems to match colour of surrounding rocks.
It looks like its cold and windy here ?
