There was a big fight between the birds down by the lake. They would all have the same piece of bread.

Welcome on TN Carsten. Nice attitude on this Larus ridibundus (Blackheaded Gull). The colours are nice for a grey, cloudy day which it looks like. The focus is a little soft on the head and more on the tail. Otherwise good handling on the light and nice composition too - a little more space in front of the gull would have been nice. But most of all I miss a note telling little more about the picture and the taking.

Hi Carsten, and welcome here on TN, Hope you enjoy it and post a lot .
I like the pose of the gull, also the size. However, it needs a little breathing space in front of the bill and a "stronger" highlight in the eye by the use of fill flash. Withthis nice lens you are using, you must shoot at a smaller f-stop to render the whole subject sharp, the dof gets compressed at the 500 mm side. Just some pointers to help.
