I tried to turn this into a B&W but I may have overdone the conversion. It was shot at high ISO to begin with, so it got pretty noisy. Let me know what you think...

I think that's a baboon not a monkey. But given your constraints I think you did pretty well. As Pixil said you might boost the blacks a bit. Too bad you didn't catch a big yawn to see those fangs.

Can you post the original? Curious to see what it looked like in color.

It's got a feel like it belongs in a book...photojournalist​ic almost. I think the noise suits the B&W conversion.

Here was the original. I wanted to bring out the second eye which was stuck in the shadows. I might go back and redo it, is it worth trying to salvage or is it not interesting enough?
