Seagull and Easy Lounger, East Bay, Traverse City, Michigan.
It was the end of summer.
It was alone on the beach, doing nothing. Like it was having a duel with the beach chair. Waiting for Godot.
Oh, wait. It was alone on the beach, doing nothing. Like it was having a duel with the seagull. Waiting for Godot.
Just autocontrast and unsharp mask. Original had more space to the left of the chair but the picture was tilted - I had to rotate it and was forced to crop the space to the left of the chair.

Great! Very good texture and composition. I like the seagul, that almost look like it's posing for you... The frame also adds a lot.

Wonderful simple pic, Ken. For me, the chair is the main subject more than the seagull. I like the contrast and the colors. Well done, Ken.

Very attractive shot!
Sharp & clear, cool natural colours, it gives a lot of rest and peace, almost perfect... I only wish you had framed the chair a little less tight.

I like it! It's a simple and pleasing composition with a limited pallete of colours (which works great). Well seen!

Very good composition. Did you wait for a seagul to come, or did you decide to take the shot because he was just posing there ?
The white frame around enhances the result.
I like it much.
