I shot this today. Only editing was a slight crop and little tweaking of levels. It may or may not be my best December photo, but it's one I like a lot. Tough category.

I love the ripple. High quality shot.

Even the drops of water in its beak, as far as I can tell. Gorgeous colour. Tiny bit of tension at the left and bottom of the frame, but you certainly got 'the moment'.

The gull alone doesn't do much for me, but the circles in the water makes the photo work. Gave you a 7.

This is wonderful. The colors are rich and the texture is very impressive.

What an intimate shot. You must have a great zoom lens or a lot of patience, waiting for this. It's wonderful!

The water rings were a fortunate capture, really makes the shot for me. Great job!

Beautiful photo, sharpness is superb, the ripple on the water really adds a lot to the composition.

Good job with the water ripples. And I like how the seagull is still looking at the water like it's interested in the ripples. Nice job!

Good light, color, focus. I do think removing the 'droppings' would of been more appealing. Other then that this is really a good photo. Might be cropped a little tight on the left-hand side. Good luck in the challenge.
