Yeah. They kind of look like snapshots from the zoo. "Look, there's a lion. Take a picture!"

The last Lion is decent, but there's grass in the way and it's just his head.

I liked the picture and I just wanted to see what it would look like in black and white. Hope you don't mind, but I kind of used it as a challenge to practice different conversion techniques that I've been coming up with.

I really like the rocks actually but I'd like a little more contrast (ie definition of fine detail, not stretched out tone curves) in the trees. Not that they should command any of the attention, but the fact that they're so blacked out actually makes them command more attention because it looks unnatural

Exactly what I said.

Haha it's not my shot so I feel wrong responding to criticism, but since it's my process I guess it's also my prerogative to do so.

The four "main" trees were darkened separate to the background. They're there to separate the rocks from the background as a mediator of sorts, I guess. I like trees a lot, and they're definitely there to command a little bit of attention. I know what you're saying, but before they were dark, the rocks just didn't seem to *pop* like they do now. I wanted the picture to seem like there was little to no light landing on the rest of the scene besides those boulders.

But yeah...just testing out new ideas.

The blacked out trees would look better if there was a little more detail to them. As is, they look like black blobs in the shape of a tree.

If I were to go step-by-step everything that I did in this picture it'd make for one LONG *** tutorial, man. I'm still working on it right now.
