Quite a lucky shot actually. I woke up this morning to major fog. I had to get photos printed for my art show and the store didnt open until 12 so I ventured to take some foggy pictures at the beach. There were so many seagulls that I couldnt help but photograph them.

converted to black and white in photoshop and did a little burning. Played a little with the levels and midtone contrast.

Beautiful! I recognized this immediately, as I was there in July of this year. You might enjoy some of my shots.

Darn, I gave this an 8. It's excellent. Should have been top 10 for sure.

it's the bird reflections that make this so outstanding. Posthumous Blue Ribbon.

Nice foggy wharf shot. The birds and their reflections really add some interest and movement to the shot.

This is one of my favorites of the challenge. I love the fog and the reflections of the birds on the sand. This photo really captures the environment.

I like the monochrome, and the vanishing point, the reflected birds and the fog. Well composed
