Shot in howth a fishing town outside Dublin,we as irish are in a major depression are boats and trawlers cannot afford with the deisel prices to go at sea for long periods,our goverment will be taken taking numerous trips to china,hong kong,new york,switzerland, vietnam,and basicly any other country in the world over the saint patrick day holiday,we are abundent with sea gulls, train them as the chinese to catch fish,start with the chain and eventually give them a longer lead,thats politics

Nice clear sharp image of the bird and chain.
I like your composition, whether planned or not, giving the bird a position amidst the steel and concrete wherein it demonstrates a lack of diesel fuel is no barrier to its need to fish.

grt shot Jimmy nice dof to bring good details out of the bird love the title
tfs regards bryan

Hi Jimmy,

A wonderful observation with perfect details!

Great sharpness and perfect POV along with well done DOF, make this work very interesting. Great contrast between the colors of the seagull and the orange colored ship. Well done!

kind regards,

I love the seaport photos mood.
You catched a nice one, the foreground subjects are strong, cool and well placed on frame.


Great photos with very good focus and colors.
Regards Zoran

dear James,
very mild and peaceful scene in Dublin port,
and moreover picturesque image indeed,
the lone seagull is watching the boat, it looks poetic,
I like the contrast of fore white mooring stake and gull, and back orange boat, it is nice.
thank you for your wonderful shot,

Hello dear James!

Nice shot in vivid colors and contrasts. Nice clarity in the shot and the bird is looking great with the bollard in the FG producing good DOF. Do not you think the seagull is little out of focus???

TFS, indeed good shot and nice note... ;)

Best Regards,

Great harbor atmosphere,excellent colors and framing.Greetings Otto.
