A face emerging from the rock. Well done. An interesting composition. Nice tones, too.
Kay: This elephant did not like me either! She was a little angry with my taking pictures of her. I will post more of her and explain.
The zoo here has a baby elephant, which is a hoot to watch, but this adult looks mischievous too! Nicely captured!
Kay: All of the elephants at this zoo are a handful, Martin. In the mornings before they eat, the elephants go through some "behavioral training" with their zookeepers. I took a few pictures and will post them here.
Nicely composed Kay. Great the way the stone and elephant could almost be made from the same material.
Kay: Thanks very much, Chris!
I like this one alot Kay. The elephant does almost look like it is part of the wall. Why was she angry with you?
Kay: She tried to reach me with her trunk when they were inside their pen, indoors. And she was becoming agitated as I took pictures of them going through training exercises. Perhaps she did not want them published! Thanks for your comment, DD

Another clever monochrome choice, this one.

If she's the mother of the calf that Martin speaks of, no wonder she was a little concerned. The best advice is usually to offer the offended party a copy of the picture. Have you tried that?
Kay: I think the elephant would rather trample me then get a copy of the picture! LOL! This elephant is not a mother, but the daughter of another elephant...she was born at the Oregon zoo.
Muy buena Kay !! Parece que el elefante está escondido en el entorno. !

Very good Kay! It seems that the elephant is hidden in the surroundings! Good PP wink
Kay: Muchas gracias, Jose! All my best to you. smile

Kay, the elephant looks like a sculpture, cool tones

Kay: Thanks Suby! Hope your migraine is gone.
great color tone...
Kay: Thanks so much, Chantal, for your comment. Glad you like it!
Oh, I really like this. The texture is fantastic.
Kay: Thank you very much, Mary! smile
LOL at Colin (chunter)! And at your "A little hay for your thoughts."

Even on my daughter's horrible monitor (I'm babysitting this week!), this is fabulous, Kay. Elephants are so fun to watch, especially as they lumber around. I look forward to more of her.
Kay: Thanks Ginnie, Oh you will see more of this elephant. She does yoga! Will work on getting those shots up.

I've the advantage of being able to read all your replies. Sorry to hear she was a bit cross with you.

The picture though, I like it. I'm always fascinated by the tiny tufts of hair elephants have, this shows them beautifully. The composition, for me, is priceless!
Kay: Hi Ellie! I am very glad you like this picture. grin
Wow!!!!!!!!! That is a beautiful shot......Lovely tones.
Did you use Orton effect?
Kay: Hi Anup, I'm afraid that I do not know the Orton effect. I used an action that I found online, I believe. Duotone. Does that answer your question? I'm glad you like it!
