I love the smell of meditation in this shot. I've tried it in color but it was too distracting. Just he and the birds, plentry of food and no schedule to follow. Slow shutter speed (1/30th) and narrow depth of field to allow the birds to blur adding movement to the scene.

Post-procesing - b&w conversion, contrast enhancement and a bit of vignetting.
