There is a new pier that is made last year in Kish Island in south of Iran,Persian Gulf and is a good place for capture the birds around the pier.it has a 400 meter long.
Kish Island is located 18 kilometres off the southern Iranian coasts in Persian Gulf.
The island lies 300 kilometers from Bandar Abbas, 400 kilometers from Bushehr,200 kilometers from the Emirate of Dubai,and 1,600 kilometers in land route,or 1,052 kilometers in air route,from Tehran.
According to the national geographical divisions,Kish is in the domain of the Lengeh District,Hormuzgan Province,but is run independently by the Kish Free Zone Organization (KFZO).
The relatively oval island has an area of over 90 square kilometers: 15 km long(east-west) and 7 km wide (north-south).
The Isaland has almost 21,000 inhabitants(2004) with an old root in a history more than 3000 years!

A good nightshot with a very interesting foreground.The row of birds look nice and the orange tones of the ???contrast so well with the nearly black tones of the water and the sky.The lelights in the background and it`s reflections look great,too.

beautiful composition with those sparse but varied elements in beautiful light.

A very nice composition here, Mohammad, with a nice balance of dark and light. The orange-yellow-black color scheme works well. It's not one of your best, perhaps, because it was taken in full darkness; I think late twilight would have been preferable, so not all light was artificial. It's certainly very observant of you to put such a shot together, though. Regards, Ken.

Great composition, very well balanced. I like the good contrast of the orange tones against the dark of the night. The nice birds and the big reflections created a poetic atmosphere.
Have a nice week

Excellent sharpness and exposure management, especially if we consider a hand-held photo.
Good composition as well.

Indeed a symphony in the night, excellent choice from this title.
Very lovely night picture with the wonderful reflections in water, but the seagulls are real eye catchers, very well done.
Have a nice day,

i like this repetition of birds..and the qualitty and clarity are very good..
bery nice nightshot
vivekrb (240) 2007-09-25 6:33
This is a well shot night picture. The reflections in the water are nice and complement the orange of the pier(?) The exposure is also good as the subject has been properly exposed and the lights in the far distance also look great. Good composition sticking to the basics. Its interesting to see how the birds are perfectly aligned. I am wondering though if you would have got nice colors in the sky had you shot slightly earlier?
jmcl (14535) 2007-09-25 9:56
Wow .. you hand held this tremendous results .. I love the balance between dark and light ,.. and the tone .. and this image of birds at night is very unique. Wonderful.

Excellent composition with the huge docking place for the sea gulls on the left and the distance light on the right. The overall orange colour is perfect.

Hi dear Mohammad,
This shot is really art work and esthetical photo. Excellent night shot with beautiful and very nice colors, light management, reflections, star effects of lamps, birds and composition. You are right, this looks like " Symphony of the night " actually. Great POV. Congratulations my dear friend. TFS,
Have a nice week.

Wow, what stunning colors and exceptional attention to details in this night shot. The reflections to the right are a very nice offset to the bold pillar and birds on the left. A very good composition indeed and TFS. Gerald
ChrisJ (116674) 2007-10-13 3:04
It's good to have one seagull breaking the repetitive pattern. Wonderful reflections of the night lights in the water, with good colour & sharpness. Tfs!
salvator (19110) 2007-10-20 1:48
Just superb the use of light and the illumination on the foreground. The sense of depth and the balance of the composition is supğerb.
I wish you a great weekend. Best personal regards. Salvator.
Angelillo (9374) 2007-12-18 16:15
Wow! The miracle of the light! It's quite impressive how a little bit of light, so concentred in a point is able to create an image so suggestive and poetry! You manage very well the composition, and the expressivity of each element in the frame! Congratulations!

Hi Mohammad, the image has so much rhythm that if I were a musician I would write a jazz piece based on it. Excellent capture.

A great composition with these birds. I like the atmosphere taken into the night.
