Photo: Elephants - Jason Edwards
This photo by Jason Edwards was captured in Botswana using a floodlight as the animals went to drink water.
The use of B&W photography here was well-done, because I think that it creates an austere ambience that is appropriate for these large majestic creatures. The lighting is also spectacularly done to highlight the animal's features. The depth-of-field in the shot is such that it allows for the head of the animal to be in focus but not the body. The depth-of-field and B&W also do good job of accentuating the texture in the elephant's trunk.
