Sheesh, did the voters here want you to place a reflector board under the seagull to give some fill light? This is a great panning shot. The boat-like thing on the right is a little weird, but not that distracting. The colors look a little flat; maybe a bump in saturation or a poke of the curves adjustment would make this picture pop more.

Woefully underrated in my opinion - this has a lovely soft grace to it.

A good bird shot. I would have cropped out the tail of that one bird on the left. You could probably clone him out after challenge to spruce this image up a little bit.

I like the concept of this photo. The only bad point is that the blue bird doesn't stand out too well against the blue water background.

The whites in the background are a little distracting. I love the color of the bird and you kept it relatively sharp. Nice job.

You really did a good job getting the focus just right! It must have taken you ages to get that shot.

I would zoom in a little more. Very nicely done though!
