No nature photography trip to FL is complete without documenting alligators. I have been posting some birds we photographed in that gallery. Here is one of the friends we made last month. Please click on image for details.

The b/w conversion is quite effective and dramatic with the subject matter Ed but I might be tempted to go for more of a pano presentation and include more on the right side of the image, even if its only water. Just my 2 pennies worth.

Thanks Carol.  This is actually not a B&W conversion.  I purposely underexposed to avoid blowing the highlights on the gator's back.  I agree that having more image to the right would be nice, but alas, it was not there in the original frame.  I posted because I liked the way the image looks B$W and is not.  Thank you for taking the time to comment.

I love the colour pallet as shown, don't mind the crop, the interest is all in the head with these critters.

Great find, Ed, and I like the idea to underexpose it.

Ominous -looking "friend". I like the way the head and scales are emphasized. Very creative.
