The juxtaposition of picture elements is, Chris feels, critical in his images. Here he worked with:-

1. A static element: the ornate ironwork on Brighton pier,
2. A semi static one: the flag on it's pole and
3. A mobile one: the seagul.

In fact Chris reports that coping with the uncertainties of the mobile elements was made a little easier in this case as a series of gulls were repeatedly following the same path and crossing the pier at more-or-less the same point. So, after deciding on the best camera angle for the ironwork/flagpole (oh, and the just-glimpsed distant seafront buildings in the corner), it was a case of subtle adjustment and split second timing for the uncertainties of gull and wind-stretched flag.
