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.
