Perfect composition of these in-flight birds coming together. Love the way the backlighting highlights the subject as well. Hmmmw..looks like they got a prize too. *S* #4712342

Nick, you capture seagulls like no one else! In your eyes these common birds turn into ballerinas, graceful in flight and so beautiful to see! Another fantastic capture indeed! Looooove that lighting!! #4927870

Dawn M. Schneider February 16, 2008

this is so stunning, the lighting is fantastic #5505167

Dick Jenkins February 24, 2008

Exceptional shot! I'd hesitate to suggest there was some luck involved when blotting out the sun as these 3 birds scuffle over a tender morsel. You have a fantastic, once in a lifetime shot here...that is, in my estimation, but as I look through your gallery I'm not totally convinced that YOU won't have more. #5544413

Michael S. Lazarus February 26, 2008

Great shot Nick. Tack sharp focus, perfect exposure, and just the right composition to show it off. One of those dream shots for sure! #5558486

May 28, 2008

AWESOME! ditto to everything that DJ said, except the part about luck...
Luck = preparation + opportunity. You are obviously gifted and work hard for both. Pleasure viewing your gallery - added to my favs ~ Regards, Stephanie #5990547
