Sunset and Seagull's
"We come from miles just to see
the pain of today slip into the sea.
No invoice or bill admission is free.
We flock to the shore camera's in hand
trying to capture the beauty and peace.
The red's, orange, blues and pink's all
sketched with indelible ink.
Etched on the canvas of an evening sky
painted in our own mind's eye.
Color's so bold we never forget
as if the canvas is still wet.
We drink in the color's like a fine wine
as seagull's sing in a painted sky.
We stare into the sunset
like our lover's eyes.
And if your lucky and thing's are just right
you might see a green flash tonight.
That really makes a great night.
The sun kisses the sea goodnight.
We keep coming back to see where the
world's best show is always free."
by Jim Grant
Thanks to all!

A divinely beautiful picture accompanied by an apt poetic tribute to its sublime appeal.
branley (3681) 2006-10-28 13:25
you've captured something really special with your image, beautiful dark blue colours, lovely tones of red & orange and of course the lovebirds.....I've never though of seagulls as lovebirds before, now that's a thought! Lovely poem, well done.

superbe composition sur tous les plans techniques d'abord, et ensuite sur le résultat lui-même avec une petite touche d'irréel.
Quelles magnifiques couleurs.
Regards from Belgium.

a magical shot. what a great POV that is. dramatic atmosphere is impressive. thanks for sharing,
batalay (38551) 2006-10-29 0:21
Your gallery always beckons a visit, to see what you have most recently posted. And each visit rarely disappoints. Excellet image, with exquisite composition, light and exposure. The fullness of the birds breasts has been achieved lighting (fil-flash?!?) and is better than having just a sillhouette of the birds. Regards, Bulent

Hi Veronica. Brilliant photo, just the right blend of colour and detail. Well captured and thanks for sharing.
kfreud (1231) 2006-10-29 7:53
where did yout take this picture, in which environment. The poem is nice, but does not answer the questions.
Have a nice day
anducina (8407) 2006-10-29 11:23
Foarte frumoasa compozitie, culori si lumina. Pasarile astea au ceva apocaliptic: singurii supravietuitori in urma exploziei atomice/ciocnirii cu meteoritul/incendiului global si catastrofal/sau asa ceva privesc orasul mistuit de flacari. Impresionant.

Beautifull picture with these two pretty seagulls.
Nice composition and pretty coulours.
Very good shot Vero..!
rosaline (0) 2006-10-29 13:37
A wonderful shot and one that has a touch of romance to it. I love the colour of the sky and the off center composition. Very good shot indeed.
atus (15856) 2006-10-30 3:30
fantastic shot of a great atmosphere here! Very well taken from an excellent low pov and with fabulous perspective on the seagulls. Great low light and amazing colours of the sky. Great, as usual!
Tfs and best wishes.

Salut Veronica, Bravo pour ton image elle est très belle. Nous pourions y voir un vieux couple d'amoureux après s'échanger quelques recommandations. Techniquement parfaite, cette lumière de fin de jour... magnifique. Ciao/jr

Excellent picture. A piece of ART. Congratulations ..
Cretense (68701) 2006-11-01 5:12
The return of the "prodigal daughter". Where have you been for such a long time? It doesn't matter, what matters is that you are back with two more masterpieces. Incredible dramatic image, perfectly composed. Unbelievable colours! Congratulations!
deblink (2548) 2006-11-01 16:31
The colours in this image are superb. I don't know how you did it when so dark but the birds have just the right amount of light to show up all their features and colouring. Glorious. Thank you for sharing.
Budapestman (82620) 2006-11-02 11:20
This is a fabled and fascinating photo! What a spectacular impression! Details are very fine and expressive. Its an excellent POV and pictiresque atmosphere. Gorgeous colours and glittering lights. Splendid shot, indeed!
Thank you, nice days

Very nice composition with the gulls at the right point before the very nice colored sky.
aralda (1240) 2006-11-03 12:21
Din nou o fotografie deosebita. Interesant cerul si frumos ca se vad destul de bine si pasarelele.
AiresSantos (56155) 2006-11-04 3:31
Gorgeous sunset with this lovely Seagull. I like your note and how you framed the picture.
Magnificent colours, very good definition.
Thanks and have a nice weekend,
john_c (24666) 2006-11-06 13:28
An outstanding shot with unique features, as I have never seen seagulls captured in such an eerie setting. The silhouettes here are superb, the POV well chosen, and the sky divine. A fine note to accompany. First class work.
rbcy1974 (20758) 2006-11-08 16:56
Really beautiful with your trademark magical lighting,
great angle and great way to fill the frame.
markstaples (15670) 2006-11-11 3:29
How on earth did you achieve this???!! It is STUNNING. The gulls are perfectly placed in the frame, but it's the colours and light which make this shot so successful. Keep up this excellent work.
sabyasachi1212 (19779) 2006-11-11 4:46
This is such a beautiful picture that words defy me. The sea gulls are perfectly placed and the low POV brings the sky into play. Well done!
With Greetings from India
Ulishna (2268) 2006-11-13 15:16
wonderful birds! So unusual and interesting colors and light. Very dramatical mood...
vinicio (23423) 2006-11-15 1:24
Excellent image, excellent indeed, compliments, fine composition and great light and colors, compliments, I like well the well balanced light and shadows and the pigeons.
jrj (34843) 2006-11-15 12:44
This is simply outstanding. It must be the best seagull shot I ever saw. Top use of the details - and what a mood. Top work
keribar (43841) 2006-11-25 5:00
This one has something special, as if it was taken by a great movie director. Can you imagine this picture with a great music at the beginning of a film ?
I am not sure that it is a single picture, but in any case the rseult is stunning - Izzet
Henryk_Bilor (20799) 2006-11-26 12:36
Amazing capture. Lovely couple against a beautiful-coloured sky. Perfect image.
pady (4800) 2006-12-17 6:28
Intersting shot, however I feel birds (so foreground) a little too under-exposed.
lelson (0) 2006-12-23 9:24
What can i say? perfect color and composition. An artwork. Well done.
Photo65Net (43120) 2007-02-09 3:47
A nice one, once again !
You caught nice light, and a great POV over these seagulls.
Image is very graphic, with great impact.
