    As far as colour is concerned, this is indeed hard to ignore and that's feast of colours if treated correctly. You have spotted the potential of making this an eye catching one. It takes a good eye to spot this where everything on one hand, literally fell into place for a good composition, on the other hand the image is over overexposed that you have lost detail particularly in the burn out white areas. The exposure compensation can trip you up, remember that the camera has decided an exposure based on the brightness coming right at the sensor, so its already made a decision to reduce exposure and you then add more ending up where you did. So in this case, leaving the exposure alone would have worked perfectly I think. Good attempt nevertheless, Thank you

It's well oriented with excellent depth as the people is obvious features that have really worked for the shot. Well managed exposure, contrast and sharpness. A fine candid.

    Hi Gert
    Clever ideas & great candid moment with this 'stolen picture' when the body lingo says it all and quite entertaining! It's a nicely tight cropped to fill the frame, excellent clarity and sharpness and great colour to go along with this cool joyous moment which is precisely timed. This image stretches the imagination in a nice sort of way. Great work, Congrats

    Hi Ourania
    Something I've never tried before & not easy and thks for posting, Gulls usually look their aggressive selves in images ... this is almost a sympathetic shot. I like it. I especially love this with the bird against the darker bg that seems to improve the whole image and the exposure is right too that you have not lost any detail particularly in the white feathers - the most critical area which tends to 'burn out' but great that you've got it spot on there! Secondly I love the harmonious combination of colour and pin sharp in focus too. A standout shot of this graceful cutie and seeing from such close distant and capture timely is a great achievement. A serene capture & a nice piece of work. Fine shot, Congrats

    Hi Christian
    A smartly composed shot as focus is concentrated on the old stone bridge over the calm water and how well it blends into the environment. I love the diagonal touch, depth, clarity and the immaculate detail, human interaction lends a nice final touch there. A satisfying image in every way very carefully constructed. Excellent catch, Congrats

    What a wonderful snow capped mountain and stunning reflection on the still water. The camera has caught the moment with the colour of the sky and the lake - of which the latter is so luminous blue while the warm fg grabs attention adding an extra vivid splash of colour against the whole setting so beautifully. A perfect vision of tranquility nicely taken. Congrats

    Hi Lisa
    A nostalgic reminder of how things used to be, you've taken it from a good angle and for me the crop is just tight enough. You have gone about this capture so thoughtfully, and brought it off to perfection IMHO: the presentation is so in keeping and the arrangement of the different elements within the frame just right. Excellent olde worlde presentation and well worth putting up. Congrats
