You gonna eat that?

The seagulls in Monterey ARE NOT shy. I think the tourists like to feed them and they become rather aggressive. In this photo, I had just finished a 5K and was sitting down on the sea wall to enjoy a banana and a bagel. My little friend landed right beside me and watched me eat every single bite. I did not share.

A seagull sitting very close looks on as I eat. Not So SAHM

My little friend was pretty dark in the original photo. I couldn’t increase the exposure of the whole picture though because the water was almost blown out. I used an adjustment brush on him to balance out the lighting. I also used two different graduated filters to lower the exposure of the water on the right side. Doing that made the bright area look brownish yellow, so within the filter I cooled the temperature. That got rid of the yellowing. Here’s the original:
