Simplicity


The winter weather cries out for experiments with b/w and simple photos. This one of seven hooded gulls sitting on the ice on the moat circling the citadel, is a case of that. I've cropped it a bit, converted it to b/w, overexposed it and increased the contrast. The result is a very simple photo of the birds where only the dark parts are showing and rest is left to the imagination.
