Photo of a cheeky gull in Birmingham at Dudley Zoo. The fish was meant for the penguins, but the gulls were too quick!
Given how sunny it was the ISO is a little high, but I needed the speed.
Please let me know what you think and how I could improve it...

The white seems a little over exposed. Maybe try exposure comp to add detail to the white feathers.

Thanks for the comments, I think the whites are beyond recovery sadly. :( will have a play in LR when I get chance.
Pixel peeping puts me off this image (noisey and bad CA) but reduced like this I'm really pleased with it.
