I made more aproximately 150 shots of seagulls trying to get one for this challenge. But they were a bit far from the place I was. I finally catched some from near, but was quite difficult. Finally I like the shot, but I don't know how will it work. A guess: 5.75.

Not sure the vignetting is needed here. At least not for me...it's more of a distraction than helpful given the size of the subject in the overall frame. The feathers on that gull are mighty smooth! Looks like some detail was lost along the way in post-processing. Yes? Noise reduction was likely a little too heavy. I really like the warm lighting on the gull - very well exposed for this light. Best of luck to you in the challenge.

I would have liked to see a bit more detail on the back of the wings.
