Silent Conversations

Silences make the real conversations between friends.
Not the saying but the never needing to say is what counts.
— Margaret Lee Runbeck

I’ve been wanting to do a bird silhouette shot against the setting sun. So, I took a break from shooting down by the beach and spent sometimes watching marshland birds. The original image has similar background tones to these shots. I didn’t want the background light and colors to dominate the picture, so I converted the color version to B&W. To leave a touch of background colors, I reduced the b&w conversion layer’s opacity to 80% instead of 100%.
