Run Rabbit Run

By GillyB    
Another Californian image, I was amazed at the cottontails, jackrabbits and roadrunners that were in abundance here ... great for pointing the camera at!

Converted this to mono as I wanted to emphasise the textures in the fur.

Thank you to Ron for his prestigious UA on my last upload Grin

Many thanks as always for your time and any advice is always welcome.

The mono tones do show up the texture of the fur very nicely. A very good image.

Excellent composition in the square format, Gill. Tones and textures look great in mono.

Lovely detail Gill...I would have liked to have seen it in colour though...sorry to be different.
Nicely isolated from the bg,a good angle to get close in to.
Nice catchlight in his eye & I do like the square crop.

Thank you Adrian, in the original the bg is quite colourful and very distracting hence the conversion Smile

This is terrific Gill, great clarity and the mono treatment works really well

Great clarity and the use of monotone. I would have never have thought to use it for animals.

Nice one.
