those are the mountains above Monterey, CA, as seen from Santa Cruz.

Wow...I love this sort of sparkly bokeh. Your backgound makes the gull look even more cool. Great image.

An amazing capture. And the bokeh is spectactular. The crispness of the gull suggests a very high Shutterspeed, but the overexposure suggests a slower one. I'm gonna watch this one, I'm interested in seeing your settings and lens.

Bokeh works really well on sparkling water. Great catch on the gull.

Cool shot. Nice and crisp. It looks like there's a bit of color noise that could have been cleaned up with NeatImage or the like.
