One from two years ago when we went to Zambia. With our guide, we found a group of elephants and tracked them for most of the day by boat and by jeep. We were in a boat when the group crossed the Zambezi from island to island - it was a fairly magical experience.
Thanks for looking and for your time.
A big thank you to andylea, Carol (gingerdelight), Rock and meniko for their UAs and to everybody else who commented and voted on Snug. I didn't think it would do this well!
Ann

Just noticed the sky is a bit noisy - so I've uploaded a version where I've hopefully got rid of it. Smile

I was flicking back and forth and unable to see any difference until I read your remarks up top, Ann: you have better eyesight than me but once pointed out I see what you mean.
A delightful shot of the elephant making her way across but it's an element that they love, I understand.
What a treat to have been there and seen this.
Ronnie.

Superb clarity, Ann, a wonderful experience and capture. I actuually prefer the original (v1), only the sky is a tad noisy but smoothing it for v2 loses a bit of the sharpness on the wrinkles.

Lovely capture Ann - but detail is lost on the Elephant and its refection from your noise removing in V2.
You could have made a loose selection or used a rectangle marquee tool and just selected and removed the sky noise only.
