great capture. i'd probably crop off the cityscape, as it really distracts the eye from the beauty of the subject. good luck!

I would have prefered that the bird be on the left 3rd. Give him room on the right to "fly into". The centered composition doesn't work here...

Nice capture. I find the top 2/3 of the image distracting and busy (however, may have been your desire). Does however give a different perspective of the gull flying beneath the skyline rather than above.

Not having the bird centered (rule of thirds) would make it more dynamic.

Great DOF here - the city background really adds interest. I would have liked it if the seagull was a little more differentiated - it seems a little flat here - maybe more contrast ? Great job in stopping the motion.
