Nice one! Great colour and I like the way it breaks the rule of thirds but is still very effective. The birds on the tops of the poles are a nice touch.
Cheers, John.

Hello Angela,
Beautiful perspective of the poles leading to the horizon. The birds sitting on top of it making it more interesting to look at. Nice blue sky with streaks of tint white cloud.
Well done and I like it.

Hi Angela,

Wow!! A very nice capture. I see almost all poles are occupied!! Nice colors and reflections. TFS.

Interesting combination of horizontals and verticals, with the poles extended by their reflections. The birds are a whimsical feature, and they seem to know it:) Well done.

Hi Angela

Lovely blue tones in the shot, they are very calm and restfull. I love the poles leading us across the shot (the birds are an added extra)



Hi Angela
Interesting composition with those poles tracing a diagonal line. Nice tones of blue and funny crowns on the poses.
Nicely done


Fantastic shot Angela

Perfectly composed

Hi Angela,

This is quite a nice scene. I really like the seagulls perched on top of the posts. I think this may better scene to photograph at sunset or sunrise. You would need to get down lower or higher to move the post tops away from the horizon. Nice shot.

Hi my friend,

Beautiful composition with good contrast of blues. I love how you composed this shot with the poles in alignment and at an angle with birds perching on the top.

Very very nice. I love the contrast light and colors. Perfect.

Awesome natural reflections captured Angela! I love the deep blue shades and tones of the water and sky. Awesome line as well from a plane.
Nice shot!

Hello, Angela,
Good capture.
Original construction.
Fantastic effect.
Very good picture.
The beautiful perspective of the poles, what lead to the horizon.

Szia, Laci

Hi Angela,
Very nice row of poles - and birds. :) Effective composition - although Paul (pdp) is right about composing the poles closer to the top of the image. Nice lights and blue tones, eye-catching view overall. Congrats and tfs.
Best wishes, László
