    Shifted between colour and mono on this one and finally settled on this.

    I do like this with the BW. Perhaps make the eye pop a bit more.

    Great shot. The lighting makes it look almost like a wood carving

    Cheers Mike, I suppose the eye could do with a little highlighting for the conversion but it is a naturally dark eye compared to its surrounding tissue anyway so i tried to keep it as is.
    Thanks Pete, I agree it has a very totemic look doesn't it.
    Thanks Sharon, the keepers weren't best pleased when I hopped the fence to apply mascara for the photo shoot. Then again neither was the hornbill.;)

    Love it!

    I love the contrast, the placement of the eye, everything.

    Very cool image.

    Fantastic lighting! The texture is wonderful. And so is that eye that captures mine. Nice.
