Location: Rovinj, Croatia
Description: It’s about the bird. It would have worked ok without but I think the image is far more impactful with the gull as the focal point. I had walked out about 100 yards or so on the breakwater to get a better vantage looking west along the shoreline of the old town in Rovinj. I sat on the stones waiting for the sun to set and was aware of the multitude of gulls circling and calling. I had this shot in mind and focused on a single gull, waiting for it to be in the position I wanted and took a single shot. The other gulls have all been removed digitally. As a fine art photographer, I have no issues with altering an image (slightly) to suit my vision.
