precious shot! i find the rock in the front a bit too bright and distracting though, maybe just burn it or a slight vignette? 9

I really love this! We have nesting kittiwakes here in Newfoundland, I'd be thrilled to get a photo like this.

Not sure I've ever seen baby gulls. These are adorable! That white of feather is so very difficult to shoot without blowing it out, but you've done a very nice job of it. Great contrast and sharpness.

This is so crisp and clear it makes it hard to imagine it could be real.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great. I like how everything but the beak is naturally black/white.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Highlights on the back of the gull are blown out as you no doubt know already but this is a really nice image regardless. Shows very sweet parental attention, the babies are adorable and the focus is nice and crisp. Good composition too, although I don't personally care for the border. Nice work.

Scaling the cliff wall was slow but steady going. Cailet came over the rise and was greeted by a sight she was hoping to see. Making sure she was safe and secure to the wall, Cailet pulled out her lightweight camera to take pictures of the mother kittiwake and her chicks.

Wow, there are some fabulous details in this shot - given that they are cliff dwellers I don't want to even think of the heights you may have had to scale to just get this shot. You have some great interaction between the mother and her babies too.

awesome white tones and fantastic detail. not sure if the beak is intentional left saturated or if this image is natural, which sells it so much more.
