I know it's to protect them etc, but animals don't belong in cages Sad

I know the elephant is a bit blurry - I was trying to give him a dreamlike quality - not sure if it worked though Tongue

The composition and story work, and you are right about the blurriness of the elephant.

I think the tracks should reach the horizon. The poor guy will have to turn around and head back otherwise. A good creative idea, I like it.........Sandy

I agree with Sandy that track should have reached the horizon. Otherwise an excellent manipulation.

Wonderful Alda, as Jasmine said about my elephant, "is this real?". It is if you saw it in your head. Thanks for this, Si

Very touching! I agree - no cages. With the wonderful nature films around, there is no need to have animals on display.
