1/125s, f5.2, ISO 250, 600mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash

    I like your photo a lot. Can't figure out the scale to it - the water looks close, like a small pond, but the birds are too small for that. No matter - it's a really interesting image. Almost abstract. And thanks for the new word - 'pelagic'.

    What I like best about this, are the warm colors reflected in the water, and simple composition with the birds. A nice shot!

    I have several books on 'abstract nature' - this one deserves a page in them!

    Now I hope that my next pelagic trip in March gets me that light. Gorgeous.

    I like the abstract quality, the colours in the water and the flying birds and reflections give it reality. One of my favs.

    Just magical ! I love reflections like this too ... all the nuances of colour in this, plus the birds, put this in my top 3!

    A fine image which blends the abstract with photorealism.

    The relative size of the waves to the birds looked way off until I saw the title and remembered those longggg rollers in the Pacific :-) Good composition to capture that abstract quality.
