I am not a B&W enthusiast, but this is irresistable!
A fantastic composition of the heads of three sleeping Sea Lions nuzzling together. It would have been great to see it in colour, even if the org had little colour.
Great image anyway and thanks for sharing it,
Best wishes, Ivan

Welcome back my friend! Nice to see again! Really I also want to be lazy :) but we are starting to herpetological trips. You are lucky indeed :D. Your capture is lovely and splendid in all aspects. Well done! But now I want to go to sleep thanks to these beauties :-). Thanks for sharing this nice shot.
All the best! Take care!

It may be a bit unless someone calls Mike...but he will be here...and I know how much he loves this type of image, a I do well...There is a special quality to certain ones...mostly in editorial but in nature as well..I think Ansel gave us all hope which should last for at least 2 more generations...very nciely done!

Simply amazing scene and framing. I welcome use W/B palette so much. Very touching, perfectly done job. Exposure, details and sharpness are spot on. Bravo.

A nice BW capture of these lazy sealions seems that they are not worried about food. Excellent details and a fine composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

I'm flattered that you dedicated this picture to me. I do love black and white pictures and I'm a big fan of Ansel Adams, who was a master of the art as is Bob Shannon. Done well, B&W shots can provide and unique insight on a subject, without all those colours to distract the eye. The secret is to use the right shot, and this is a perfect conversion to B&W. I love the detail in the fur, the sharp white of the whiskers and the tonal range is perfect. I'm sure it's a great shot in colour, but it's a very special B&W one. I'd be happy to see this shot hanging in my home.
But I'm particularly pleased as you were one of the people who encouraged to to keep posting on TN at a point where I had pretty much decided to give up. So I also owe you a debt to gratitude for that.
You are a great photographer and a great contributor to TN. Keep up the good work.

Aahh now that is CUTE!!! :-D
This looks great in B+W because the dynamic range is so good.
Very sharp with lots and lots of detail.
The expressions are brilliant :-)
Well done Krzysztof,

Outstanding black/white shot of these cute sea-lion trio taking a nap. Fabulous moment captured with very skilfully chosen POV and with immaculate sharpness. This indeed is a masterpiece and reminds of an era gone by. Superb composition. Kudos.

A lovely capture of these three snoozing friends.
The way they meet at the middle of the frame is neat and well composed.
I like the sharpness and focus.
The contrast is well handled.
Nicely seen and presented.

very special shot and these guys are really cute.
I like their noses, and the whiskers are so sharp and clear.
Well cropped to give an effective visual impact.
