Loved the sky at this rest stop on 95. One gull was perched there at first, but then the rest of the flock started flying around and I loved the scene. Not quite as color-saturated as I made it during processing, but still a pretty scene that hundreds of people were completely ignoring. In the years before I became a photographer, I might have been one of them.

PP - converted from RAW, straightened slightly, cropped, CEP (tonal contrast), colored the blown part of the sky and its gulls a bit pinker, levels, contrast, lightened magentas, cloned out some spots that looked like camera filth, resized, Nik Sharpen.

Love the pastel tones in the image.....weirdly, to me, it has a romance feel to it.
