Animals in Black and White

During post processing of the photos I have taken during my visit to the Afamosa Safari, I have noticed some animal photos stand out more in black and white. The coloured background often produce unpleasant distraction of viewer eyes instead of focusing on the animal itself.

Below are few of the photos as example:

In this case, after convert the image to black and white, the eyes of the monkey stands out more, compared to the coloured version where by the green foliage have caused the distraction.

However, not all the animals looks better in black and white. So, it is really depends on what you are shooting. For example a colorful butterfly looks better in colors together with the green background.
