        That's a nice example of low-key mono photography.

              Thanks very much, Garry. You know how the saying goes in photography that you can learn to "see" in black & white before the photo is taken. In this case there was an obvious coloration, contrast difference to the fur in these two sea lions and I thought nothing quite says "contrast" like black & white and therefore, I thought it'd be a good candidate for this type of presentation.

              I'm pleased you like it and I have many other examples I intend on sharing with everyone here.

                Here's a few more examples of the type "side-lighting" I enjoy. The last image provides an example of a "hide-and-seek" effect, which in this case has a portion of the jaw "missing" and our brain simply "completes" the image. I strongly favor the darker end of the exposure spectrum. Hand-held, no cropping.
