I adore the perspective, you definitely added depth by putting the blurred seagull in the foreground. Also blurring the background was a good idea.
I imagine this one must have been a great fun to make :)

Lol fun because of what I was trying to recreate but damn frustrating having to put all those birds in ...oh and lets not forget the bird poo all over the ground.
Im very happy with the depth and perspective of this piece...its not something I usually pay that much attention to but this piece needed it for impact.
Thank you again for taking the time to comment sweety :hug:
