Horrible! The eye patch, the unfastened chin strap, the team with an attitude... oh wait - the bird. I love the first shot - nicely framed to show the bird in context. The detail of the bird in the second is very interesting. What did you use for the capture?

k.. ill actually give you some critiquing.

first of all, let me say that the reason not many have commented so far is because of the season. In the winter, you'll get a lot more comments because people are inside more.

That being said, no need to make excuses for yourself by saying "...on a boat.." and "...with a point and shoot..." you obviously posted the pics because you think that are pretty good.

I wold agree. technically speaking. the subject matter, certainly not the greatest. in pic #1, the lighting on the bird is fantastic. almost like you used a filler flash, but it was the sun (I think). The horizon is not level. a bit of PP would fix that. although the rule of 3rds is nice.

Pic #2, seems just a bit fuzzy (that could just be on my comp though). it really doesn't emit any emotion either. I mean, it "just a picture"... take that with a grain of salt though. Its a good attempt especially on a boat and the bird is flying above you.
Too much blue space as well. but that's just my taste.

If only seagulls were prettier birds! eh?

Thanks for the comments.... I'm not a technical pro but what I used was a Nikon P100, and for the 1st pic was ISO 160, 15mm, 2nd pic was ISO 160, 44mm.... basically just shot on Auto Mode.
