B&W Sea Otters

Here are some more sea otter photos from Morro Bay, CA.  There were two pups in the group and it was difficult to get a decent shot of them.

Converted these to B&W using NIK Silver EFfx Pro 2.

    I love these! I was wondering if you had gotten any of that rambunctious pup!

    • Thanks Amanda. It was fun to try to get shots of this big pup. It would be cool to see some little ones some day. Another good excuse to go back again.

  5. These images are stunning. Such a great idea, converting to B&W to iscolate the subject. I may have to try that; looks like a fun and rewarding endeavor.

    • Thanks Gurn. B&W can help to bring out the detail in shots. I got challenged on Facebook and used some of these shots.
