Another from my day in San Pedro.
The seagulls were gathered on the dock so I sat waiting for something to disturb them. The answer came in the form of a windsurfer who went sailing past just before this, creating an explosion of activity and the shot I was seeking.
Unsharp mask, crop.

Very nice. When viewing the thumnails it looked like a wave breaking over the pier. Close inspection shows a wonderful composition that has a very relaxing feeling about it.

Hi Kai, This is a very appealing composition. The water colour, offset subject and the clear birds come together well. TFS. Murray.
