I really like how the grass and sand points your eye to the seagull. Well done!

Thanks, I had considered cloning the bird out but as you say, it helps lead the eye through the shot so I left it in

Thanks! Originally this was processed with more of a high-key feel and the local newspaper actually published it. I've been going through some of my older photos and re-imagining how I think about them. So with this I did the raw processing in Affinity photo then went to Nik Silver Efex Pro. Started with a low-key preset and raised the brightness, reduced contrast and then added control points for structure and brightness mostly on the right side of the photograph. Then back in Affinity two more curve adjustments for deep shadows and mid-tones.

Thanks! That's an impressive bit of work. Congrats on having it published.

Nice and moody. I love it.
Kinda reminds me of a scene from I am Legend.

The conditions were perfect, so I took a chance at 1:00 am. I haven't been out to shoot in 10 months.
