Spatial Arrangements and Emotional Attributions

Here are two untouched (just resized raw files) images -

Here are how I see them as B&W images -

I processed them and titled them to indicate feelings they evoke in me. Processing is mostly restricted to B&W conversion, brightness, contrast and toning. Isn't it interesting how our mind perceives arrangements and tonalities and attributes different meaning and feelings (subjective realities) ?

Your thoughts ?

very interesting work with the elephants ganesh :)
visually both are appealing , just that I see lead image more like the departed elephant and vice versa
maybe i see leader as standing alone :D
bnw rendition does evoke feelings more than the color version though.
