Too bad this is a basic editing challenge. Could have done a lot more with Advanced.

Anyway no nudes from me , a Rhino is what I have to offer. Basically focused on the contrast and sharpening to bring the skin details out. Shot at noon which I always feel brings out unseen textures if shot at the so called "good" light times for photography.

Again I hope the voters will see this as a better than 6 shot ! Thanks for reading.

Nice rough skin.
Unfortunately I think the over sharpening hasn't helped this image.

I think a little more of the face showing would have been better. Also I would turn this photo completely b&w. As it stands there still some color showing around the horns, which is distracting to me.
