Taken while throwing bread in the air and trying to swing the camera up to take the shot.

Yes i'm afraid all the "too far left" comments were correct. I didn't crop it this close it was on the far left edge.

great capture, great composition. love the black head almost going out of the frame. It gives this terrific energy. 10.

Good caputure of the gull. I think it may have been better if you had been able to crop it so that the gull was flying into the picture instead of out of it (JMO).

bumping his head on the edge seems a little ackward to me

Head is way to close to the edge. Breaks compositon rules.

Poorly balanced composition. The bird's head is too close to the edge, and the top of his wing is cut off.

The crop is just a bit too close on the left. The area that appears in focus seems to be the stomach...a bit distracting.

Cool overhead shot. I wish there was a little more room in front of him, so his head wasn't bumping right into the edge of the frame.

Fantastic - I love the wqay the feathers are backlit. Really creates lots of detail and texture.
