Hello Pierre,
The focus appears sharp, but the harsh lighting resulted in overexposure of its white plumage. The end result has caused some detail in its plumage to be washed out. I have a lens similar to the one you used and believe a bit faster shutter speed would have brought the exposure down to a better level. Colors look good.

Salut Pierre

La lumière forte n'a pas aidé à la photo dans les hautes lumières (blanc),
mais une jolie photo goéland Argenté dont de la façon diagonalement
tu as cadré avec les vagues donnent du dynamisme à l'image, TFS


Ciao Pierre, great capture of lovely gull in difficult light, wonderful colors, good details and excellent sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Pierre,
Like water colour and floating Gull. But white OE badly and that glittering sunlight in front of the bird is distracting. You could easily clone it out. Composition and POV could have been better if you captured it in eye level POV. Small bird; bit tight crop would have been effective in my opinion.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice WE,
