I would love to see the histogram of this image. Amazing painting with darkness.

I like this even better the 2nd time. Very well suited to B&W. The tonal range is excellent and rich. Beautiful. Gotta bump it up one, too.

I find myself really enjoying the way this is done. The neck acts as a leading line to the water.

Voted earlier coming back to comment now.

Your B&W tones are just fabulous! Love the texture and the detail I see in this photo. Nice action shot of the swan dipping into the water to gather food - the water rings are a great detail. The beads of water on the swan's head and neck is also a great touch.

Gorgeous shot. Love the swan and the detail. The fact that his beak is in the water is even cooler (can't think of a better word at the time, lol).

The black and white is amazing. he definitely stands out from his environment.

The scrumptious detail of this disembodied head finding its way so accurately through this fascinating maze...make me want to see this image BIGGER.

Wonderfully done, confusing at first but delightful in closure.

Beautiful and strangely serious...

I love the droplets on its face, the contrast of the feathers with the water and the lines of reeds.
