There's a poignancy to this image Jools. The man and child sitting together with the bird flying high above. Puts me in mind of loss. Powerful and thought provoking image, well taken, really like it.

Great use of Dof & nice how your eyes and probably those of those on the bench are drawn towards the gull. Geoff

Hi Jools!

I really like this type of shot and think you have done a wonderful job of capturing the moment here! A quiet time in a nice setting, but what makes it for me is the bird flying which breathes life and motion into the image. Be proud of this one - it's a great candid shot and deserves to do very well!
