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.

What is there not too like about this excellent wildlife capture Ann, as stated the reflections add the extra ingredient, the light also is very good considering it was early afternoon, all round excellent capture!

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.

Superb image.

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.

V1 is a top shot Ann, I'm surprised this one was hidden away on your hard drive for so long!
