There is a moment when the setting sun reflects from the white underside of Seagull wings. I have not yet managed to capture it.

At first hand it looks nice,but.........as the light is coming from the left the pitch black silhouettes don't seem believable. The used 58 MM and date/time taken (see exif) doesn't help the suggestion either.(placing clouds in conjunction with the gulls) So...I ask you.Is it a merged image from two separate images ?
If so......not a good job. Sorry.

Martin.
Best regards,

Martin.

Rectification:

After some explaining by Pentaxboyo by PM I felt the need to
post the following:

On retrospect I think my comment sounded more harsh as I intended it to be.
For that I apologize. ( that #%&@!! time window for editing comments ) It's just that based on the visible info I was pushed into the feeling of a picture blend. That on itself isn't a sin, I do it myself sometimes.
So maybe the conclusion should be that IMO you have overdone the effect a bit, and thereby making it a bit less convincing as a silhouette.

Best regards,
Martin.

I really like this shot, the colours are amazing and the silhouettes looks cool.
I would, however, crop the image just below the top silhouette so u get less blue in the pic.
Just my taste, a great shot never the less.
