I really like how this iamge turned out, so I hope you like it. I wish this was really Africa but, alas, it's just an elephant collectible during sunrise rather than sunset.

Converted to black & white, colorized in yellowish sepia, then several layers in Overlay mode. Slight gaussian Blur and there it is.

Nice backlighting. I have a hard time believing this is actually in Africa and you actually caught a pose like that. Seems sort of fake, but I may be wrong and then it would be amazing.

cool, nice colours, not sure I like photos that use the same coloured border as the image but thats just my opinion and I WON'T mark you down for it.

Very nice though, are they toy elephants or a statue of some kind? (I'm pretty sure they aren't real!!)

Cool, I have some of these little wooden elephants...never though of doing something like this with them.

Exceptional colors. Although there is a lot of space in the sky - keep it AS IS. The gradual fading into blackness at the top is great. Don't like the thin-yellow-line border. My biggest negative is the mergers with the elephant shapes. Too bad there were not at least one animal less.

More carved models? :o) Lovely use of negative space and I like the inclusion of that bush for softness.
