So before the challenge I was trying to think of something that would be considered "greyscale" and couldnt really come up with anything. Well you have one here and its a great shot to boot. My only complaint ( a small one at that) is the left eye - either all in or all out IMO. Hope this scores well for you. Back to bump - you get one more point from me - good luck tonight!

It ain't no bird but it is a wonderful photograph. I'd love to see the rest of the photos you took of this magnificent animal.

My favorite so far. Pushing the black and white rule a bit perhaps, but I just love the texture and the framing.

I am so envious that you had the opportunity to take this photo, I really want to see a real, live elephant for myself one day. This is gorgeous, and I love the emotion captured as well as the texture. Adding to my favorites, good luck with the challenge!

Wonderful picture. I wish he was a little more grey though, he is a bit on the brown side to me.. I love the detail though.

Nice detail. Great use of white balance to make it appear sepia toned.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Looks more sepia than B&W but still in my top 10. The cropping of this image is perfect and I've added this to my favorites.
