After the post of Bagheera and his black-and-white images in The-Other-Guys-thread, I thought it would be fun to create a thread specifically for B/W wildlife photography from Thailand.
I took a dive in my elephant photo archive and started converting some images to black-and-white in Photoshop by using adjustments black-and-white layers and playing with the various color channels.
The results might not beat the work of e.g. Nick Brandt ;), but still I was quite happy with what I got; images that sometimes were dull and unusable in color, turned out to be quite interesting in black and white. I also tried it with my avatar shot, and also prefer the B/W version over the color shot.
Please, feel free to try it yourself with your Thai wildlife shots and post your results in this thread.
Here is a selection of my results after spending an evening post-processing to B/W.
No captions needed, all are Asian Elephants and all images were shot in Khao Yai national park.

I don't remember the time of all these shots, though i think most of these shots are late afternoon, let's say 16:00 - 18:00
Apart from the two elephants in the open plain, it is all photographed along the road to Haew Narok waterfall.
It's all in Khao Yai national park.
The plain is at the foot of Khao Khieo mountain.
