Really good shot, and I love the way the mother's head stands out against the dark background. A black and white shot of a creature with such gorgeous colour might not be the obvious choice, but in this case it really works. Lovely clarity and detail. Thanks also for the useful information on leaving the cubs be where possible. Same advice applies to fledglings, particularly owl chicks. They might look helpless but they are best left where they are if you find one.

This is a lovely shot with good contrasts and composition. You get the eye contact from the both, very nice! The B&W is a good idea: no distraction from the vegetation. TFS,

Great shot of the Vixen and her youngster, its a lovely pose with superb eye contact and she does look like she has licked the cub to death!.
Excellent details and the B&W works really well.

A stunning photo of this Mother and Baby Fox. The black and white is exceptionally effective. Wonderful pose - looks like a studio shot. The faces of both are superb - she looking very protective of the impish looking little one. Marvelous eyes and beautiful coats. I love it!!!

Hola Karan, bastante ocupado ahora con el trabajo , aunque procuro publicat fotos a menudo pero me pierdo algunas de las vuestras...
Gran expresividad y belleza en tu toma con buena luz y colores bien tratados.
Hasta pronto: Josep Ignasi Tejedor.
Absolutely! A perfect time and choice for a dynamic B&W...Perhaps you have inspired me with this one...I do love my B&W...and I am going belly up financially..so I might have to sell my Leica in order to stay above water. That is my bread and butter camera...ah well..I shall go out and try a few more as good as this if I can...and perhaps I shall change my mind!
do come and see my new

WOW ! what a beautiful image of this Mommy and her baby fox,
OUF ! not only beautil but in the same time in black & white,
and presenting your image in B&W it render the image more beautiful,
fine POV and DOF, wonderful luminosity on the subjects
and the foreground, with bakcground's shadow it gives
a great contrast to the image, excellent sharpness and details
and a great eye-contact (or glance) of both Mommy and baby with (to) you,

Outstanding B/W shot of this mother and cub with fantastic eye contact. Very impressive sharpness, clarity and details and perfect lighting. I like your low POV to get maximum effect and the composition is vintage - classical. Kudos.

Awww now that is cute!! :-D
I love the expressions on their faces :-)
Very good contrast which is perfect for B+W.
Extremely sharp and really detailed.
Great composition too.
Well done, Karan!

Hello Karan. It happens often while looking at one of your picture that I feel your feminity in it. I love your way of looking and describing what you see, what you feel and how it shows in your pictures. You seem to be observing so much and catch, with a lot of care and love, the subtle moment, an eye to eye contact... like this picture. Thank you, great great work

I rarely see a B/W shot, Karan, they used to be around when we used those non-digital cameras(I forget what they're called), nd this shot comes in like a breath of fresh air...
A brilliant capture.

What a wonderful picture, Karan!! The black and white gives an interesting look to it. I like a lot the eye of both, mum and son.
A marvellous capture and very interesting note. Good to know that the cub survives better by its own if I find one some day.
Thank you very much for sharing.

Glad to see you got the shot Karan and nicely done in B&W, it was good to see you at the BWC the other week.
I managed to pull a few shots but was really struggling with the harsh lighting.
will have to return on a cloudy day.
all the best, Clint

Una foto de blanco y negro de alta calidad. Me agrada la pose de la familia de Zorros, su mirada es bella y exelente el gusto del fotografo para escojer este par de colores.

A wonderful portrait of mom and cub in the open field. I like the difference in the expression of both. Mom in the garding mode, and the kid in the don't care mode. The conversion to B&W is perfect and brings out so much more details.
Love the b/w image of Honey and her cub.Definately has the aww factor.Nice to meet you at BWC back in May.

Wonderful contrast and lighting.
The focus is sharp with lovely detail.
Awesome eye contact.
The turned up ear is great.
