I think it is very hard to pull off a good image of a seagull and I can see the idea here, Davud but the light just doesn’t work for me.

Given the late morning/early afternoon time frame, you handled the harsh light very well, David. I do see what Adhika is saying, but it doesn’t really bother me and this isn’t really a “gull” image to me, but more of a “gull against an interesting background” image.
