sweet nothings

By philhomer  
isn't it amazing how our 'work' improves over time - unfortunately i have not been lucky enough to repeat the trip but even reworking this old image has improved it considerably - hopefully will get the chance to get over there and do it again within a few years.

my own criticism of this is that i would have liked more light in the left eye of the zebra to the right of the image - i have lightened it a little using levels and a layer mask

both on epz and my tuition days i preach the 'think before you take the picture' approach but here, rather embarrsingly is a clear example of me 'getting excited' and just taking it...

for the less experienced -

consider the achieved shutter speed here, considerably faster than required, so i could easily have move from f4.5 to c. f8 or smaller and still have retained a suitable shutter whilst gaining more depth. i should have managed my setting more carefully - whilst still retaining a shutter o f1/500 or faster due to the rule or reciprocity
