August already, July just rused by. I managed to find time to shoot and the picture above is my favoritet from July.
On the evening when I photographed the seagull the sky was covered with clouds. These conditions gives a smooth and soft light. Which is perfect.
For those of you who are interested in technology, I used the Nikon D3 with 600/4. ISO 1600, 1/400s at f8.
It’s never easy to pick one image…
Why did I chose this image? I’m not sure. The crane is a beautiful and magnificent bird. Maybe it’s that simple.
After I took the shot I felt that the image should be black and white. It dosen’t work i color.
I use the AF-S 600/4 on the Nikon D3. 1/1600 at f4, ISO 800 handheld.
Later in the digital darkroom I made the basic adjustments in Lightroom. In Photoshop I used Silver Efex Pro to make the image black and white.
