Hi Akbar,a brave attempt this black and white,but honestly i think that this isn't a good solution for nature pics,no problem,this is your taste and i respect your choice,and the pic is truly beautiful,great close up very well exposed and with fine detail.Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

An interesting BW coloured bird. Still the white seems OE. The shining in the eye part is the most important value on this photo. Cheers,

It's not my taste, sorry. The photo becomes unnatural, specially with the white bill. The white is over-exposed as you said; sometimes inevitable. Sharpness and composition are very good. Wondering if can post the original photo in a workshop.
Enjoy the weekend,

B/W has a major deficiency ...
They have a tendency to become O/E.
If I were you I'd W/S the original "as is".
Mind you, the image is ok as far as sharpness and focusing goes.
But it does "appear" as NOT NORMAL for our times ...
Best and kind regards from Canada from Mario.

Akbar, I like the coloured version too. It shows the distinct colours of its bill and eyes very well. The B&W version has greater artistic appeal.
Well done and thanks for sharing this picture of an unusuak subject.

Perfect image in B&W version of this bird, excellent lighting, even it is not a natural version it is an excellent presentation. I like your effort to show its beauty in a different way.

It's funny you posted this in B&W, because I was just thinking the other day about trying one myself. My latest edition of "Outdoor Photography" magazine had a whole article on B&W photography. Most of the images they displayed were of landscapes and I have to admit, some were pretty awesome.
As far as this particular photo goes, I think technically it is great. It may not show the bird in it's natural color, but it is still a pleasure to view and you did give us a chance to see the original. Well done!!

HI Akbar, An interesting attempt and the B/W conversion is OK with me but it does give a feelings of lack of life. Great details and clarity despite bit of o/e of part of the plumage. Thank for sharing
good portrait. Is it really white (hehe)??!!
