An excellent capture.
Looks like shooting into a bright area has caused this to be underexposed somewhat.
Its a decent shot, and looks better when the exposure is addressed, as in the mod.
I would also suggest re composing by adding some space to the bottom and right to move the Gull off centre.
Last suggestion, - sharpen after you re size your image for uploading, - an image can often lose detail due to compression, which appears to have occurred here.
I hope you find this constructive,
Hi John, lovely capture.
Its a white on white subject and the camera has tried to average the exposure out to the 18% grey thats the average for most images. So the whites have become grey.
If it was against a blue sky it would probally have been fine.
You can brighten this is software as i did in picassa (the 2nd mod).
But you can also brighten it in camera - much harder for a mobile subject like this but you'd want to either use a Av/Tv or P mode with exposure compensation maybe +1.3 ev - but you'll need to try this out to fine tune it.
Or go full manual - and set iso, aperture & exposure.
Say to ISO800, f6.3, 1/500 - but this is a wild guess for the scene you might have been in - again its trial and error and with close observation of the in camera exposure meter.
Another control that can help is white balence, but AWB is usually fine for this type of subject.
Many thanks for the comments. Out of the three mods, I think I prefer the middle one.
Also thanks for the heads-up on the copyright banner focus_man
I would go for the crop - I know it's a sore point at the moment, but your logo is the strongest part of the image because it is black and can be removed in a second. The general image is good, but needs the brightness of mod2 with the bottom crop.
Then a touch of un-sharp mask - not sure if the slight un-sharpness is original or due to processing - most sized images need a final sharpness boost.
