i like both but prefer the bottom one if i was having it on my wall i would go for the one with the whiter highlight especially in the sky its fierce and angry .but hightlights the white in the giraffe.

I shoot in RAW and use the Standard Picture Style. I like playing around with my images afterwards to see what they look like using different picture styles. Here are some of my favourite Monochrome Images.

Taken at Tandala Camp just outside Ruaha National Park Tanzania. Fantastic elephant watching in the dry season. Thats Big man in the middle, so named because he's one of the biggest bulls around. I find elephants extremely difficult to photograph well and B&W often works to bring out the texture and depth of creatures so large whilst combatting the tricky light.

A different B&W conversion of the same buffalo pic I posted a couple of days ago.

That's the problem with not being on safari... I have to play with old images.

Time to plan for the next one! Or have you already done so? Both posts are great, but personally I prefer the first one - it's more emotive.

In colour, this was a nothing shot.

A small group of elephants walking under a heavy sky. But I was sure I could do something with that glowering sky.

After a bit of playing around I managed to come up with a B&W version that I think is quite striking.

Like wading elephant 1 best  @IamFisheye. The background adds texture, contrast and perspective.

 

@Soukous that buffalo shot is fantastic.
