Very nice portrait.POV,details,proud expression on face,framing,DOF and composition are wonderful.TFS...:-)
Yes, I know the town very well :-) I'm rather negative if backround is concerned. The white sky makes the gull even darker and causes the chromatic abberrations around its head. The dividing line sky/roof distracts attention from the portrait. Just being honest :-) Best greetings! Michal

Sorry for the quick critique, but my time is limited today. Great work here. Nice POV. Good sharpness and detail. Great work. Thanks.
Nice one Greg! But I miss the Polish blue sky and I can agree with Michal. But you're allowed one dull day on a holiday. Is that the sky I can see through the hole in the beak of the gull? I like your POV looing up at him. A good job, thank you.
How are you going? Improving quickly I hope...

Excellent portrait on this gull. Perfect exposure of the bird with sharp detail in the white feathers. Composition and framing are great!

I am thinking (there I go again), that perhaps this photo is a reflection of how you really felt about the visit to this place, on this day; and therefore is a good souvenir to have, (better than a plastic one for sure!)
I believe we all have some of these in our archives as well... :-)
Nice eye detail, POV, and note.
Thank you for sharing it with us.
Great idea, going for a walk...

Good portrait Greg. Exposure on the bird is excellent and the details are sharp. Well composed and good POV. The bright sky is a bummer, but there was nothing you could do about that I suppose. ;) Well done & TFS!

Nice portrait, good detail and composition.
The sky can't always be a nice blue, and you've done well with the exposure of the gull.
Thanks for posting.

It would've been great if the BG was blue, but still the photo looks very good. The POV and framing is perfect, nice details to.
I like it very much.
VERY WELL DONE & TFS

ładny portrecik, ostro, ładnie odcina się od tła. Wygląda jakby ptak stał w cieniu. Dobra nota i robota.
