A good angle and pose, Simon. Maybe a bit too central (for me) and I would maybe crop the right side to take out the rock and then reverse the image to put the zebra on the left and looking right.

Agree with Dave. The animal is too central, and would probably be improved by reversing it.

Hi Whiterose thanks for the comments as i am new to photography and especially photoshop i have not used it, 99% of my images are as they came off the camera. I am planning to sit a course on photoshop . If there is anyone out there that could take me through the steps of photoshop (CS4) for this image they are more than welcome to guide me through it.

Its a very good shot. If you have CS4, just open the image; select the CROP tool, - its the fifth down on the left; select the whole image with the tool; in the middle of the right dotted line. theres a small square, - click and hold, then drag in inwards to the left to clear the stone; then press OK.

To flip it horizontally, go to Image>Image Rotation>flip horizontal, then OK, Save the image.

The idea of flipping it so the Zebra is looking from left to right is rooted in the idea that in western civilization, we read from left to right, so photos that "read" left to right appear to be better.

There are tutorials on Photoshop in the techniques section of this site, and loads on Youtube.



regards


Willie
