Thanks for your comments - appreciated. As I mentioned - it was just a “snatched” photo - and doesn't pretend to be anything else. It was taken in poor lighting conditions due to the English weather yesterday (that's not an excuse).
I apologise for the fact that the photo is obviously “not up to the standard” that's expected for posting on here.

I confirm what was said by Jim, the photograph must be especially fun and sharing, you must not worry!
We're all friends and we like to see the world through the eyes of others.
Grounded certainly was not going to criticize and dismiss anyone, he did so in good faith, even if it seemed abrupt.

Thanks for all comments - they are much appreciated. Criticism is also appreciated - and, speaking as singer who has sung solos in Music Festivals - and then listened to the Adjudicator’s comments of your performance - I know that criticism is important. Sometimes, however, it can be a bit difficult to “link” into a particular comment. Being interested in photography (as I am) but not particularly interested in the “technical” side - sometimes adds to the confusion!

I like the simple but strong composition and the strong contrasting colours.... and I love seagulls...

I would say the white has 'merged' well at the bottom, because the details do show at the top of its head. Overall, a nice, bright, photo of the gull.
