In my opinion the black and white in Nature does not work very often..... but here somehow it does! Bravo Erwin!
George Veltchev

Hallo Erwin
The combination of black and white medium and the black and white of the zebras is really eye-catching and different to the usual. Loot has been to the iMfolozi about two weeks ago and he says the trees and grass are lush and very green. Thanks for sharing a lovely image. Best regards.

Hi Erwin!
I agree with George. Usually I don't like photos of Nature in B/W, but this works well....it's appropriate, according the colours of zebras.
Good sharpness and fine details. Beautiful play of lights and shadows.
Original and very pleasant composition.
Ciao! Vanda
I love zebra...it's the symbol for my favourite football team (Juventus F.C.) :))

Hello Erwin, I agree with George that the yield in black and white does not do justice to an image, if there were the colors would be much more beautiful. In any case, the catch is a great catch and the time you read is really interesting. All the best, Paolo

Hello Erwin,
I like your choice of black and white. It works well and the scene you show is vivid and interesting. Love the attitudes of the zebras. Good composition too.
Thanks and kind regards

Hi Erwin,
this BW is lovely in enhancing and pronouncing the beauty of these striped ones.
Good lighting to emphasis the natural look.
