    Hi all,

    it's been forever since I posted here.

    This is a juvenile flamingo from the LA Zoo this weekend.

    Any thoughts on how to make this better?

    I've been adding a touch of color to my B&W conversions......A little blue to the shadows and a touch of pink to the highlights. Anybody else doing this?

    I like the processing also. It's always nice to have an alternate choice for something most would obviously have given in color.

    The background was dirt and I purposefully underexposed it somewhat.....then increasing contrast took care of the rest. Done in lightroom.
