I think a crop would bring out the best in this image.
I'd crop sky off completely since it's burnt out anyway.
Then I'd crop a good bit off left hand side leaving the gull
and the grasses as that is your subject.
Then I think you'd have a more appealing image
as the bird and grasses are really lovely.
P.S.See what other members think!

V2 is way better. I would add to Kates suggestion by cropping a little more off the left, to just include the person in dark blue closest to the cliffs far left; and if you know how to reduce highlights, you can recover a great deal of detail in the white of the Gull. I have downloaded V2 and performed these changes and it look very good. A very nice shot.

Thanks Willie. I don't know re highlights, but I'll have a go!

Thank you for considering my comment.
Since it has been supported by EPZ's team of experts
I'm delighted it was considered of value.
Banehawi's advice is usually spot on, so consider his comment too.
Good luck with future uploads.
I've had plenty uploads where somebody else saw the image within the image.
We live and learn.
