A nice warm afternoon at the Sta Cruz Beach Boardwalk. These gulls were eying the bag of fries that I had lying next to me, seconds before the attack lol. Good thing I had my iphone to catch it. =)

Processing is mostly:
-conversion to B&W
-color toning achieved through the color balance on CS5. Tinkered with the sliders until it felt right. I'm pretty sure I won't be able to replicate the colors exactly if I did it again.
-Warming filter and very small amount of color efex glamour glow.

Thanks for the wonderful comments and faves!

I like the image but not so much the frame. I am not sure it did the photo justice. If anything I think it took away from an already good photo.

There's something about the processing in this that makes it much more interesting than the typical seagull shot. They look almost dream-like or cinematic or something. Either way, I like it.

This is a beautiful image. Perfectly processed but the border absolutely kills it for me. Please let me know your PP steps on this if you don't mind! I love it! 8 would be a 9 from me without the border.

I like this image but don't like that the birds are cut off on the edges of the frame. a bit of a wing cut off on the one on the bottom left works OK but I find the others distracting.

Did you use a flash? The lighting is so odd and wonderful. Love this image.
