I have experimented with some more monochrome conversions for a few of my Kenya images. Your comments are much appreciated.

    Beate, I like these, a lot. I’m not sure what it is but I found that a number of my images looked better when I took the colour out. To me they just felt right. You did a nice job converting them. Shall we say “canvas”?

      Thank you, Sabrina. I know what you mean. Some images just seemed stronger without color and others don’t work in monochrome at all.

    Beate, I love these. I especially like the second image. Sometimes the colour just distracts from the image. I really like your tones in these. I sometimes have trouble getting them just right, but you seem to have it down!

    Beate I like them too. As Krista said – you really have the tome thing down. I think we can concentrate on the expression of the animals more if there is no colour. These ones really work.
