Back in December 2011, I visited Jacob Lucas and Nicole S. Young in Seattle. There was a small photowalk on the books at Alki Beach. The event itself was great – smiling people and snapping cameras.

I decided to give this image some love the other day and share it out. I remember being thankful that the seagulls sat relatively still for the duration of the long exposures. :)

In terms of processing
The primary conversion was done in +onOne Software Perfect B&W. I applied a cross process to give the image this particular look by changing up the color of the highlights and adding a slight tint to the shadows.

Final touches were applied in Lightroom 4.3.
