This is an experiment with selective desaturation given that the subject is nearly all black & white. The pink tongue, though, immediately becomes the focal point. The subject is a young sloth bear trying to get at some food stuck on a rock. I shot this last week at the Daroji Sloth Bear Sanctuary near Hampi in the state of Karnataka in India.
