My original seagull photo ‘Just Looking’ has been my most popular image on RB. Just when I think the comments have dried up on it I get some more, or somebody buys a card. :)
When I took that pic I had no processing skills and it could probably do with a good sharpen and whatnot but I am sort of loathe to touch it because I like seeing it completely as is. :)
HOWEVER yesterday I spent a very long time and did a million things to it and gave it a complete face-lift… I started off feeling a bit guilty but because I so drastically altered the whole mood of it, the guilt changed to excitement LOL. I hope you like it.
