Judges Comment

Well this came close and it is the best tortoise photo i have seen in this competition so far. The monochrome highlights the shapes of his graphic skin and you have brought real elegance to this rather cumbersome creature. Well done.

Photographers Comment

This photo was taken at a small zoo in Virginia, I just happen to notice the diagonals that were all "lined up" just in time to take the shot before this guy raised his head. Tech data - Fuji X-T2, 200mm, 1/320, F4.8, ISO 200. The image was crying for a B&W conversion which I did in Nik Silver Effects Pro.
