from the Abyss

By scott_jessuk
I uploaded this earlier on but was not much of a fan of the Frame so decided to give it the chop. Anyway thought I would upload this as my final beluga whale shot from my trip to the VC aquarium. Decided to change this one to mono and thought it looked not bad so here it is.

I like this one because it gives you slightly different points of view of the 3 beluga whales.

Would really like to know what you think of this, if you hate it let me know why and if you like it, it would be great to hear why too.

the dappled light on the grey tones of the whales makes the shot for me.....

Really needs to be seen large, as Chris says it works well.

Large is the best way to fully appreciate it

Really like this Scott, almost abstract in a way, and mono makes it more striking. Big fan of your mono work.

it's converted very well, I like the strong contrasts and the water ripling over the whales body,

This is the best one and certainly suits the B&W look. There is more detail in the shot this way for me? Very under voted though!!!!

I like it a lot. Mono works well. Looks like they are suspended in inky blackness
