B&W suits this image very well, nice reflection.
Water looks icy cold and shows the reflections well.
Hi Garry,

Open - Like the colours of the can, thats been corroding for a while! And you got the detail of the sand grains around it.
Distant - Wow thats impressive, great shot, I like the framing of the scene with the plane interior.
Cold - Like the reflections, image suits Mono.

Great shots!
Thanks, there was a few shots I took for cold but decided on this one for the composition.

This is a terrific image, I like it!!
Very well processed for B&W.
Great detail in the edge of the frozen ice, and good use of reflections.
Superb!(y)
Thanks Gareth
The relections and b&w suit the composition really well. Did you take a shot showing the top of the trees out of curiosity?
Thanks. No, this is as shot. The reeds were too tall to get all of them in frame.
That does have a clear, cold feel to it, Garry, and I especially like the wiggly reflections in the lower half. Well composed (y)
Thanks everyone again for your kind words. I’m really enjoying the challenge, really making me think outside the box.

Cold, don't think there is anything i dislike about the image (well except the watermark, i don't like them) nice reflections and interesting.

Cheers Garry.
I think I actually prefer this, the colours help imo. (But then I like my B&Ws punchy)
The colours seem to give it more 'life'.
I have to agree Tim, I prefer the colour shot however I realised too late that 2 of the first 6 themes should be in B&W:oops: :$

Nice shot for Cold, though the colour one is even better imo. Nice graphic lines. Looks like it was taken with the "new" lens?

I also had the wrong idea about how many "technique" shots were needed :whistle:

Cheers Jon, it was indeed taken with my ‘new’ lens. Annoyingly I’ve noticed fungus on the inside but it doesn’t seem to be affecting my shots.

Well both fit the theme. I won't choose one over the other - both cracking shots!
Thanks Bob
I like both shots, both work well in mono!
Thanks Dom
Um, I’m torn to be honest. I like the second but I am struggling with waiting ? However the shot in itself in mono is superb !
Thanks Chris. I see what you mean, I think without context the second one may get lost in translation.
Both great B&W images!
I like your use of reflections on the second image....clever, and well executed.
The first is super....what a pose!
You couldn't have asked for a better pose....such majesty!
Can you ask a tiger to pose? Probably not a great idea....he looks like he's definite;y in charge!!:giggle:
Excellent work Garry!(y)
Thanks Gareth, luck was on my side with timing as the tigers were very allusive. I didn’t dare ask for a pose as I may have been the lunch they were waiting for.
Lovely animal and well captured. Much prefer the Tiger shot. :)
Thanks Rick
Lovely looking Tiger - is that another's face under its belly?
Thanks Dave, it certainly is another tiger. They both retired to the drawing room after this shot.

Lovely bit of separation in the tiger shot and very clear reflections in teh shot of your son. I'm surprised you got him to pose. (Bribed?)
Thanks Tim. It was more of an opportunistic shot of my son, he’d walked most of the Zoo and was at the point of wanting a new toy from the shop. He was done :LOL:
