Wow, it must have really been close, if you were using a 50mm lens! It would have been nice if the bird would have been all the way down into the water. As it is, it sort of blends into the horizon.
Of course, there probably wasn't a whole lot you could do about it..

Thanks,
I'm quite surprised that nobody commented it because I thought it was a great pics, expecially because it was taken with a manual focus camera no PP, straight out of the film.

Yes, I should have used a longer lens but unfortunately I've never seen a bird fly in formation with a ferry boat, I have taken other shots, but when the bird was climbing or diving the pics was blurred because it was very fast and in order to get it in focus I tried to shoot at small aperture and keep it in hyperfocal range.

Great! I like the last 2 shots the most. I've never used film, so it's interesting to me, that some people still do!
