It's nice Japie,
good composed, I think you could crop some more, to become a better composition,And i think you can better keep it in colours. Farther you did a good job here.

Wow... una interesante imagen Japie, más artistica que natural, pero bella al fin.
Gran composicion, nitidez y el efecto de color, distinto.
Wow... an interesting Japie image, more artistic than natural, but beautiful finally.
Great composition, clearness and the effect of color, different.
The only thing missing is the speech bubble coming from the Oryx's mouth so we can enter our comments.
This works very well, mostly because there are so many distractions in the rest of the picture that the main subject would be lost. However, by de-saturating everything that is not important we are left to focus on the main Oryx and its expression.
I think you can put your helmet away for the time being, this is a fine interpretation.

I agree with carper with colours, but I like your cropping.
However, good job.

It carries a certain impact for sure! Is that the reason for the helmet? I think David hit it on the nail with his comment!

Take your helmet off I think it works, David put it very nicely. Nice.

Very well carried-out post work here, Japie. As the oryx facing the camera is overlapping with some of his buddies, I guess this way we really get to focus on the beauty of his colorful presence. Nice natural setting and fine notes.

Nice to see this one transfered to TN Japie, works so well, with the colour against the B&W the colours are nice too, no burnout in the whites either

Japie, This is unique. I like it. The note about the helmet was funny too. Thanx for sharing. It does place the focus on the one gemsbok nicely.

This a very good idea to keep the subject in colour while the rest is in B&W. Must try that sometime. It makes for a great photo here Japie. Well done.

Nice adventure playing with desaturation.
It is nice to me, but I would prefer to see all colored.
