Found a bunch of these foraging in a parking lot on my lunch break. Thoughts?

There's a part of me that wants to say "eat somewhere else" lest you lose your lunch, but we'll let that part go. :)
It looks to me like you got pretty good exposure on the underside of the near wing. That's no mean feat by itself. Overall the exposure looks fairly even too, so good job w/that. The only fault I can find, and it's only my opinion, is that the gull is just a little past you when captured. I find this angle to be a little less appealing than perpendicular or slightly quartering into the frame. I hope that gives you something to think over.

Thank you for your suggestion. I definitely agree that I could have taken a photo at a more appealing angle. I will make sure to remember that the next time I go out shooting.
