I think it would have been better if you cropped the shore

Not enough interest for me, I'm afraid!

lacking the detail or perspective for a "wow" vote.

The rough background doesn't seem so ideal for the birds in the size they have on the picture, they are not so good to discern from the background.

The gulls have rather got lost in this photo. A narrower depth of field might have helped isolate them a little. The alternative is waiting (and waiting, and waiting, if necessary) until they are closer to you so that they can feature more prominantly sizewise.

This is somewhere between a detailed picture and a silhouette, and the birds are not standing out really well. Catching them against the sky might have worked better at this time of day.

I'm sorry, this has the earmarks of a desperation entry. Not enough size or detail on the se(a)gulls, the busy surf detracts from the gulls as well. Could have been a good shot with a much bigger lens.

I think a tighter crop around the birds would make this photo work out better.
