I agree with Dave, great conversion and the darkened image creates a distinct darkened mood. Very nice work!

Definitely a very dramatic image in black and white, Sougata, quite befitting this magnificent species. Personally, I would go just a tiny bit lighter/brighter with the conversion, to bring out a little more detail from the darker areas on the hide, while still leaving the black background - but that is only my personal opinion, and you must do what feels right for you!

Stay safe in these dangerous times.
