Egret In Black and White (Two Photographs)

I wanted to do this egret in B&W for some time. Many months ago I posted color versions of it dancing. With noisy files and bright white subjects, never mind significant shadow obscuring some detail, it was not obvious this would work. I fixed the exposure just a bit, sharpened the images and took as much of the noise off as I dared. I increased the detail before going into B&W. I did not use a color filter, I increased the contrast, lowered the highlights, increased the mid tones and added a vignette to get the effect you see here.
