My first posting on this forum.



The seagulls were added in PP. What do you think?

Not bad at all. I like it. My only suggestion would be to try to eliminate some artifacts surrounding the seagulls. That would just take a simple blur brushing.

i think you may have overdone the seagulls a bit... the three farthest "back" don't look natural, the light on them is wrong. there are some artifacts around some of them, and also around the figure's arms... looks like this might have had a bit too much NR, and then compensated by oversharpening.and the sort of "bridgy-looking" bit on the right side seems distracting... but i love the concept!

Welcome Olebrat, hope you stick around and post more. Like that - the mood is great and the theme is obvious.I would definitely 'waste' a few of the gulls however. I think just one or two would do and get rid of the rest.

Thanks for the comments. As soon as I have the time I shall work on your advice and change some of the seagulls. I do like the "bridgy-looking" bits as I imagine Nelson standing on the bridge of is ship. I will think about this one.

Very helpful comments. Surely I shall return to this forum with more.

Always willing to learn!!!
