Black Animal

in photo52 •  2 months ago 

It looks like the photography-contests scenery on the steem blockchain is starting to bloom again! We are in the 4th week of the Photo 52, 2020 Challenge a great idea of @wwwiebe which I loved and supported from day one while, at the same time, I am pleased to see that the Deranged Photography Contest by @derangedvisions has returned! I have known Wess (@derangedvisions) since the era of the @photogames and I can't say that I don't miss the fun we had those days. If you are a photographer and you were around here a couple of years ago, you probably know what I am talking about!

Anyway the themes for the two contests are "Black"and "Animals" and I decided to go for both of them with my favorite black animal :)

My first thought was to edit in black and white but then I tried a color version and I liked it too! I am leaving it up to you to decide which ones you like best.

And after I finished with my favorite three pics Fotini asked me to edit a few more, so here we go!

Daawww!!! Or maybe that should be 'daaawwwg'! I love dogs. Dogs make everything better.

Way to get two birds with one picture! I was happy to see his contest back, too, and already got my own entry in!

Thanks for entering!

Most welcome :)
Thank you for stopping by!

Aww, good looking furbaby! Is Fontini its name?

Those intelligent and attentive caramel eyes definitely need to be shown in color! Excellent photos, every single one! @fotostef

Thank you for your kind words @ninahaskin, I am glad you like the pictures :)
The name of the dog is Marcos, Fotini is my partner. I have mentioned her name in a few posts and I neglected to clarify who she is, sorry for that!

very cool looking black! all the shiny shades :=)

!BEER

I have found it quite tricky to capture properly the black fur but it is very cool when it shines, indeed :)

good lighting is the key.
