An outstanding image Carol, as soon as i saw this I knew i was giving the award away.
Gorgeous tones, the added sky doesn't look added i only knew when you mentioned Zoo and i am still not sure.
Very well done a really nice image to wake up to on a dreary Monday morning Thank you.

12 Sep 2011 8:47AM
Wow! Two awards!

Firstly, my sincere thanks to lonely_oryx for your Guest Editor Award - I have never received one of these before and I am thrilled to bits!

Secondly, I am no less thrilled to have received TimMunsey's UA as well, especially rewarding as his work is just so splendid.

So thanks to you both - you've made a dull Monday bright and shiny!!!

Very good idea, one thing bothers me slightly is that I would like more room to the right of the baby elephant, I think it is just a bit too tight to the edge of the frame and also could do with being slightly brighter on the right as well especially bottom right corner.
12 Sep 2011 10:06AM
A wonderful capture of the elephants, and nice bit of digital work, too, Carol, it's a super image Wink Congrats on the well deserved awards Smile

First class work .Don't know how you have come up with this but it could have been taken in Africa on Safari and certainly not Chester zoo .Hope you let them have a copy and also you should enter it into some competitions as it is a certain winner with some ...Phil
