Hello Pierre,
I am still in Nicaragua, so I am viewing this from my iPhone. The focus appears sharp and the colors are natural. The gull seems to be an adult from the color of it's plumage. The deep blue sky made a lovely BG. for your light colored subject. I unfortunately get a lot of white skies here in Ohio due to lake effect cloud cover from the Great Lakes. As far as composition, I believe I would have left a tad more space in front of the bird, but this just my option. TFS.
PS. I wonder if the gull enjoyed the air show as much as you did:)
