I've just made to new works, not totally B&W, slightly toned so I might post them in a while. They were ordered to hang either side of a fireplace, so it will be good to see if anyone likes them before I send them off.

I assume that this thread is not limited to photos of animals.

 

This is one of my all time favourite photos from Africa.

It started life as a 35mm slide but I have had it blown up into posters both colour and B&W.

 

I'm sure it is not everyone's cup of chai but for me it instantly brings back memories of slogging through the jungle in Central African Republic and seeing this guy gardening amongst the trees. It was so totally unexpected.

i like both but prefer the bottom one if i was having it on my wall i would go for the one with the whiter highlight especially in the sky its fierce and angry .but hightlights the white in the giraffe.

I shoot in RAW and use the Standard Picture Style. I like playing around with my images afterwards to see what they look like using different picture styles. Here are some of my favourite Monochrome Images.

Taken at Tandala Camp just outside Ruaha National Park Tanzania. Fantastic elephant watching in the dry season. Thats Big man in the middle, so named because he's one of the biggest bulls around. I find elephants extremely difficult to photograph well and B&W often works to bring out the texture and depth of creatures so large whilst combatting the tricky light.
