I think it works beautifully here. Great light, textures and tones.

Wonderful shot, thumbnail does'nt do it justice, background blurring really works nicely to concentrate on the seal and its beautiful silky coat.

Great way to do the seal Ron, the bokeh really pushes him into the scene, fine image, Adrian

Great dof. Slides convert to B&W very well, don't you think. It's the contrasts. Bert

Nice idea to work in mono for wildlife.
The question is:- does taking the colour away tell us any more about the animal and it's habitat - I suspect not - though the picture is appealling in it's own right.
