Best View of Redondo Beach Pier-

The Redondo Beach Pier was originally built in 1889. In 1952, Tony Trutanich opened Tony’s on the Pier featuring the “fresh catch of the day.” In 1995, the horseshoe shaped pier was introduced, boasting panoramic ocean and coastline views and a large concrete area designed to bring the community together. Today the Redondo Beach Pier and International Boardwalk are a family destination featuring over 50 dining, entertainment and shopping choices and within walking distance to beautiful seaside accommodations. -Google.

Dear Allan,

What a wonderful closeup capture from a seagull with amazing details!
I like the inclusion of wooden blocks contributing up to 1/3 of the picture.

The dominating blue color in this vertical framed work is striking too.
The sharpness and POV are excellent, and light is nicely managed.

A well balanced work with an exceptional approach.

Best regards,

Love this picture! Love the beach. Great shot, the blue background with the water and sky is amazing, straight horizing line. Great subject, good framing. TFS.

Hello Allan

A pro image here with the capture of this Gull. The sharpness is awesome for this lens. You have a keeper here. Nice work

Hi Allan,
I have seen lots of seagull shots but this one is VG, I like the lovely blue sky and textures of the wooden pier & the bird is nice and sharp
