focus just needs to be a tad crisper on the nearest gull and this would have been superb, 7

  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow, what a sharp shot of a gull in flight. The background hills makes this more than just a bird shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Voted earlier coming back to leave comments! Soar indeed! Great capture of these seabirds in flight! You captured some wonderful detail in the seagull that is in the foreground from the feathers in the wings to the eye and color variation of the beak. Love how this was composed to include the mountains in the background for it is a visual clue to how high they might be soaring not to mention is adds visual interest to the scene which could contain no additional element aside from the sky. Great colors too - some soft pastels in the sky to invoke the idea of an early morning stroll upon the beach.

It's a lovely shot, great sense of vitality and movement. I wish you'd named it something else, because they are NOT "soaring" it seems to me, but that's really neither here nor there.
