Excellent stop-motion and great timing to put him against the hillside, above and separate from the houses. I agree with Fiona - while the color is very nice here, it may work in B&W as well.

Nice capture. Your exposure, focus, etc, are on the mark.

I will comment on a perfect world if you will allow. I find the buildings behind the bird distracting...hard to change when you take the image ( but compared to a perfect world)and it would have been nice if the wings were extended rather than brought in on the left (again, against a perfect world)

I too like how you have isolated the bird from the background. Maybe a bit of burn to the shadows on the bird's eye is the only thing I would think of doing.

You've done a great job isolating the gull from the background. I like the sense of height you gain from being able to compare the houses, hills etc. The bright colours add drama and contrast but I think this would also look quite good in b&w.
