Another image from a day shooting just gulls, was going to just get the gull on the sign at first but then look what popped into the veiw finder, I found it humorous so have posted as such.

Very wit Roland. I don't know if I could note the witty scene, if I did not read the tittle. The gulls and the trust they make the good composition.

Funny! The water is absolutely fantastic ... the ripples are very dynamic.

One of my favorite feathered friends, acting up as usual. Do you know what gull it is? I like it as is, but would cropp and make a second pic with the guy on the board alone

The humorous category is not a minor one to my opinion. This is not so easy to capture the right moment when a scene is funny, and sometimes we are looking at it without really seeing that once framed and taken out of the whole context, it could be so.
Well composed for a funny result, I like it Roland !

Very nice one, Roland - there is indeed an inherent humor in this scene. Besides the ripples on the water and the way the light is reflected in them, I also like the colors in the gull on the sign. Well seen!

Funny... Somehow I don't think the seaguls will adhere to the order...
Nice photo, though I would prefer that the seagul on the sign would be sharp.

Cropping and depth of field work effectively here. I love the clever point of view! The sign has all the bright color in this shot, so it gets the attention--just like it should.
