always good to try and get the horizon horizontal for these sorts of shots. Feels lonely

This IS tranquility. The ripples of water on the sand, and the birds soaring. Nice. I just wish it were a bit more contrasty. A bit too gray for my liking. Tweek it up a bit, and frame it for your wall! (8)

Nice simple, peaceful shot. The posts are awesome, and the birds are a great touch.

! Nice job with the naming, this photograph does convey a great sense of tranquility. What I love about this photograph is the two dock pilings - and then the two gulls out over the waves - it is like they are an extension of the piliings

Nice, tranquil scene. Wish you'd panned left just a little, as the R side is a bit empty. You could crop most of the R side and the leftmost seagull to make a nice vertical comp. A little more density to the blacks would make the gulls stand out from the sky better, as well.

great atmosphere shoot

I like the capture of the reflection. I really like how the top of posts are distorted in the waves.

I like the position of the horizon in this photo... the birds add a very nice touch of 'tranquility' in this photo... The only think that I don't particularly like here is the proximity of the top of the wooden poles to the horizon line. I think that either slightly above or slightly below the horizon would have been a nice improvement maybe... good work = 9

Lots of very interesting elements in this photo. Very peaceful and serene. I love the birds.

I love beach shots, makes me wanna be there.

Well-composed seascape. It's hard to capture the birds clearly with the cameras most of us have...

i like what's happening here ...but i'm wondering if using flash would have helped bring out this side of the wood pilings....also, just my preference and not saying it makes the photo 'bad' but i'd like to see a version where the pilings jut above the edge of the water and break into the sky...all in all, nicely done!

Gorgeous picture.

Post card shot.

would have been perfect if those two 'sticks' had crossed over the line of the horizon.
nevertheless, great potiential nice mood
