The seagulls want a share, but can be a bit aggressive too! Should the one hovering be there? I think it fills a space but may be an interest conflict. Street candid shot at range with 18/250 at 250, hence about 400mm. Sneaky. EOS 7D and ISO400. Aperture priority f8. About 1/800 sec.

Nicely captured! The focus is rightly so on the child enjoying her chips, and from this centre several horizontal lines complete the seagull scene. Now, to the question whether the hovering gull is distracting, I'd say maybe not because it does brings a dynamic element. Even the about to land second gull, of which only the wings are visible, participates in this. On the other hand, there appears to be another confusing bit of wing over the left-hand side subject's hair. Also, at first, I thought the piece of cloth in the bottom left-hand side distracting, but as one reads from left to right, it is really on the same line as the foregrounded white seagull (and it also contributes to the spontaneous dinner scene). The main subject is neatly framed by the backs of the two persons in front. So, really, this a delightful street scene. Bravo,
Paul

I 've only just seen those wings coming out of the head. Well spotted. I would have got rid of them.

I have visited this photo a few times so far.. I quite like it, but I couldn't tell what I like.. it's like the first time when I picked up your photo form thumbnail.. I still remember that picture, and I remembered that I'd kept going back to work out what was about, why it looked different...I thought about this picture, it could be the story behind the scene. On the surface it was the three generations' child centred, harmonious family life. They were enjoying their sea side dinner, mostly fish and chips, the adults concerned about the child..you presentanted viewers a peaceful life, but the harmony was under threatening by the hovering seagulls...a sort of tension or drama...

You summed it up, Jas. Exactly what was happening. Have you been to Bridlington? Interesting place but watch the gulls at the harbour, they will grab anything!
