The "Dayone" Male. Not sure how he got the name, but I like this portrait of him...I hope you do too.

I do, although it's cropped a little closer at the bottom than I'd have liked. But why portray such a beautifully-coloured animal in black and white?

Hi Jeremy

I'm working on doing B&W portraits of the big five to hang somewhere, so yes, it will be difficult... I'll keep trying!

Nice.

What's with the streak of light above its ear?  The flare in the top left is a bit bothersome.

But overall, very good.  I like the use of B&W in this.  I'm doing some work at the moment to convert all my keepers from a recent safari to B&W and see what I can come up with.

Sure, colour is gorgeous, but I like how this version highlights texture.

My thought, exactly. Here, the B&W treatment puts texture first before color.
