Decided I would experiment more with some heavy post processing. The attempt was to add drama to the images to reflect the mood generated that day. As we walked along the Patches Beach it was devastating to see up to 100 dead birds which had been caught in recent storms out at sea during their migration.
I pushed the contrast and blacks slider high up, while balancing out the image with Fill Light, Recovery and some tinting of shadows. This sounds like I had the processing planned out, but it started with me just hacking away at the an image in Lightroom, between various adjustments until it all just came together.
This first image is definitely my favourite.
