excellent job waiting for the right moment - the light from the sun seems to bathe the gull in light

I may have cut the bird in the water out and just showed the bird soaring over the water. I like the sun rays.

Good use of the bright part of sky and sunbeams to frame the flying seagull. Once I noticed the other bird in the surf, I started wondering how to get rid of it, perhaps with a judicious crop.

your bird in the surf looks to grainy, but the one above looks really good...the photo has a very silvery look
