Yes I do realise that the whites are slightly blown out especially behind the head but I for some reason still like the image and the face is what I like.
Nicely captured in flight ... a little blown on the whites but for me that does not detract from the simple beauty of these much maligned birds Colin

Good morning Alexa, this is superb, amazing detail and colours, beautifully timed and captured, hope you are having a good Easter.
Super in flight shot, beautifully captured, lovely blue sky and detail of the seagull.
Excellent capture of this Black-headed Gull with excellent clarity & color. Because of the angle of the sun on the tight white feathers, there are white highlights behind the eye, where there is loss of some feather detail. I guess you captured with JPEG, and not RAW, but you can run a tonal curves adjustment to the region, to see, whether you can pull some feather detail & tone down the highlights. This is a common problem, that we all face when photographing bright, especially white, subjects in bright reflected light. I really enjoy your excellent work, and hoping that you had a nice Easter...Peter

I agree - still a very good shot
Excellent shot Alexa
Lovely image. I like new Portfolio Photo
Great in flight shot Alexa.
you do well to capture these bird shots in flight, something I have not yet mastered
Wanderful this one - very sharp details, as usual - you have a good hand, Alexa
P.S. Nice profile picture , as well
Well captured, Alexa. Not easy to get everything right with an in-flight shot but you've managed very well here.
It's a very lovely capture, Alexa, an excellent bit of work. Why are we so obsessed with a bit of blown-out highlights?!!! It looks good to me, and I'd be happy to have taken it.
Hope you've had a great Easter,
Very, very good Alexa. Love the eye. Sue
A beautiful in flight capture.
Wonderful in-flight shot Alexa, lovely and sharp in the birds head with great eye detail in large. Gary
Yip another brill in flight shot nice one
A lovely image Alexa. Thank you for sharing your pleasure, with us.
Lovely job again Alexa
I like this Alexa but can't understand why you have 'critique' here as you already said you knew the whites were blown a little.....does anyone bother to read your intro
You do very well with your flight shots.. something that takes a bit of practice.
