Photographer's Note

This photo was taken at Fisherman's Wharf while I was having my lunch. Seaguls are always in the lookout for any food opportunities and this one just happened to pose for me nicely. I find the seaguls in Fisherman's Wharf quite big ... I suppose it must be due to all those junk foods they eat :)

MarianneS have a very practical question on why I did this compo in B&W. Well ... lately, I feel I've gone stale with my photography and needed to learn new techniques and explore other challenges .... B&W was an obvious path for me. I always like B&W photography but have little knowledge and skill to be confident enough to start posting here in TE. I must admit this is still outside my comfort zone, but so far I find the challenge very exciting. As what I've discovered, B&W is much more demanding than color.... some pros consider it as an unforgiving medium. The approach used in processing a B&W composition is quite different compared to color ... attention to details is quite essential. Everyday is a learning process for me and that is why feedbacks I get here in TE becomes part of the learning process. I just know that if I keep on pushing the boundaries of my photography knowledge, the better I'll become as a photographer. I've posted the original color version of the photo in the workshop if you want to post your own B&W version of this photo. Thanks all for viewing and giving your feedbacks.
