Taken with an EPL-1 and the adapted Zuiko 40-150. In the color version, there is a lack of any color differentiation between the dry grass and the leopard (yay evolution!), so I converted to B&W in Picasa. I'm currently exploring more advanced conversion techniques!

Thanks everyone!

The shot was taken in the Serengeti, in Tanzania.

Love it s0nus. Thanks for sharing. It'd be interesting to see the color version as well, if you are so inclined.
Thanks demiro! Here's a color version I just whipped up for comparison.


I change my mind. After a little PP (white and black point adjustment, tad saturation and sharpening), the color version pops just as nicely as the B&W.

Below is the original JPEG, just resized. It was a pretty dreary and overcast day. Looking at the original again, I can see why my initial inclination was to go with B&W:
