This image of Hollow the Tawny owl was taken on a very cold January day, It was original taken in colour and has been converted to B&W. I love B&W images but don’t always get the conversion quite right so please, please point out any improvements I could make to this image,………..Thanks Val

Taken at the Barn Owl Centre, Gloucester, UK

    The B&W bring out the texture even more, looks like a wood carving :)

    I don’t think I could say anything bad about this image. Turning it to B&W has bought out the beauty even more than the colour.
