Shot at the Albuquerque Zoo. The baby elephants were playing and dust was flying all around while a parent(?) was watching in the background...

The dust took care of the background and the overall feel of the photo so I did little in PS.

-Made lighter some of the faint shadows in the background wall
-Small border

Well, this one scores high with me. It has a dreamlike quality about it. I love the hazy figure in the background.

That is an awesome elephant shot. I almost entered an elephant shot -- but I'm glad I didn't because this one is unique and amazing, and would have outshone mine by a mile :)
