    Default An Eland & a Gazelle

    An Eland walks past a grazing Gazelle giving me a window of opportunity to get them both nicely positioned. Cloned out another Gazelles rear on the left side.
    Hope you like it.

    Hi Sanjeev - What a fun photo. Very well seen and executed with good planning in the field. Nice soft light and the pastel sky works too. Excellent timing.

    TFS,
    Rachel

    Hi Sanjeev, I know we often say this is 'one of your best', but in this instance - IT IS!!! Superb timing, well framed and excellent techs, I would love to have been in the same position you were in, you should be well chuffed.

    However and sadly I feel there is a 'however' the PP has slipped, it looks flat and dark, as if you tried to recover the sky and overall, the whole impact of the image has changed. Now I might be wrong, it could well be overcast & dark, but I doubt that??? Again, just opening the Exposure and refining the colour the image takes on a whole new look and I hope gets more closer to the encounter, would very much welcome your thoughts here Sanjeev. If you were trying to get more from the sky then there is a simple route you can take, but I think what you may have done is not the right method.

    TFS
    Steve

    Thank you so much Steve. I did not have to recover much sky. I could easily increase exposure in PP. I guess my Mac needs calibration. Your RP does add that extra to the image which has improved it.

    I did not have to recover much sky.
    So was this a 'global' adjustment, if so that is where the error perhaps crept in, plus the choice of method?

    Once a month minimum Sanjeev, but do it after about half an hour or so, time to warm up.

    I like this image especially the little one underneath and behind the big one. Like the composition as well.
