Shoreline Walk by papatheo Shoreline Walk by papatheo
Walking and photographing Herring Gulls at Kohler Andrea Beach on Lake Michigan. You are right... and we were trying to entice them with $3 a loaf bread... some days are like that. Actually, we did get some good shots but the gulls were pretty happy to stay out of most of them. One photo... three exposures.

Beautiful shot. It's unfortunate that part of the sand and the sky are so grainy. Ah, well, sometimes you can't have everything...

I've found the more you try to change things (contrast, saturation, etc.) the more tendancy there is to get grain in areas that already have a start that way. Getting rid of it is another difficult story. :iconsadnod:

:) I was bothered by that too but I just figured it out!!! I had added texture to the waves because they were a little blown out... and when I worked the sky one of the healing brushes was still set to texture!!! Yikes! Thanks for making me think about that... this type of lesson sticks!!! :lol:
