Almost line art, Pelican, Galapagos Islands.

Taken in the Galapagos Islands,  this is one of the numerous pelican shots that I took and is presented here almost as line art,  quite different from what I visualized at the time.    The original shot on colour negative film,  when scanned into the computer,  really lacked much by way of colour saturation and so I decided to go with black and white.    In addition, the image lacked fine detail and so I decided to accept that and push the contrast further to the point where the image became “almost line art”.  Finally, I finished it off by adding a brown toning.
