Kathleen- Oh my goodness girl. As soon as I opened your gallary this one just begged me to comment on it. A favorite of mine for sure. Not only did you capture the elephants doing their little trick which is just so awesome, but the presentation in black and white is incredible. I love the tones and this reminds me of some artist taking a pencil and drawing this. The details of the elephants are fantastic, love the background. This is more than just a conversion to black and white. What ever you did to get this look is phenominal. A winner for sure.
A work of art my friend.
Have a wonderful day and do take care. #7906351

Was this taken at a circus? I love this! You captured the elephants in perfect timing and the painted background gives it a slightly surrealistic look.
I love the B7W conversion for this image as well.

Hi Kathleen,
I keep coming back to your picture. It has such a surrealistic look to it which I love. It really has my curiosity going. In looking at the painted on background, is this an exhibit at a museum?
