This Alligator was sunning itself along the edge of the water. Image taken along Blue Creek near Astor, Florida.
The original photo was in color and I used Adobe Lightroom 6, to make it black and white.
I darkened the background so the gator would be the focal point.


Enjoy

Very nice work, Janet. The darkening of the background really makes the gator stand out and “pop.” The composition is excellent with the diagonal line of the gator leading to its head. Very much enjoyed viewing the digital art on your website.

Excellent conversion- the dark background really makes the alligator the center of attention. I like the look in it's eye-rather ominous. :)
