The setting sun illuminates the sailboats beautifully. Their masts throw very long shadows in the water, almost longer than the masts themselves. Interesting foreground with the seagulls in the shallow water. The picture has a very good DOF.
Best regards, Paul

A really lovely place for a photograph; the birds with their reflections, as you say, dining alfresco, the boats with their long masts reflected in the shallow water or linking m/g with b/g, and a lovely evening calm from the sky's illuminating colours.
Maybe a slight slant to the horizon, but I have just returned from a Christmas party!!
All the very best for Christmas,

For natural reasons gulls normally dine outdoor, and most of the other meals too hehehe!
Not for that, they are survivors and take the food where it can be found...
I notice the amazing light here, making the sailboats really stand out!

Yes, the most attractive feature is the setting sun illuminating the sail boats but even the birds in foreground are functional in creating depth and enriching the image. I like also the reflected masts on the water. Quite a fine atmosphere and composition.
My best wishes for the Season to you and your family,

Many thanks for your kind words Tom
An intense impression of serenity is convied here by the sleeping boats and the immobile birds gathred at low tide for the last "encore" of sunshine on this appealing scenery
before the curtain falls!

Well composed using the rule of thirds with good sharpness & excellent color & symmetrical reflections. The fg gulls animate the scene. Love the late afternoon sunlight on the sides of the boats adding a yellow tint to contrast against the blue. Tfs!
