I like how the "winking bridge's" reflection is reduced to a fuzzy line. Gulls well arranged in the frame.

Only took half a dozen attempts. They really need a flight choreographer to get it right...
Thanks folks.

The lines and verticals are mindbending...

I suspect a tiny touch of lens distortion somewhere - Most of the verticals definitely ARE. But there's a bit of a feeling of skew with one or two of them...

And do have one of my day's UAs...

The harp is so large it takes the combined strength ofthree gulls to pluck its strings...

A cheese cutter, a harp... this is all new territory!
Thanks to John for the UA.

I was aware of this as I was processing the file - I didn't make any adjustments as essentially it is straight. I think there are two elements combining - the corner towers are not actually vertical all the way up, plus the ripples distort the lines.

A fine reflective capture of the Millennium Bridge and gulls - I like Dave's idea of the bridge slicing them up!! 😁😁👍
