Gulls like sunsets too, and there's some room to spare ! I like this pic, because it's so simple... Even the background is uniform, we only see dark shadows... Shot in the harbor of L'Estaque where I live. Lens used was a 300mm.

The simpler the better. And your composition with the lamps along a diagonal is well chosen. Well done Christophe!

Very nice composition. I would suggest a slight crop. Look at my workshop and make your critiques

next time could you make sure there is another bird on the third light? :)

very nice shot, Christophe!
elegant the way the lamp posts cross the image and 'trap' our eyes!

Luck or not luck... You spent some time here observing and it brought you results in the form of a beautiful and strong pic!
Comp is very good and the simplicity is really adding to this one!
