    I really like this Sanjeev, but I think/feel going B/w would have greater impact. Might be my crappy laptop, but is there some red coming through on the RH ear as viewed, Andreas???

    PP looks good, likewise sharpness, well done.

    Hello Sanjeev .... Steve asked me to give you advise .

    So I try ... without seeing the raw and without knowing what you have done on the way to this file , I would use the HSL tab in DPP and drop the reds , magentas , blues in saturation and check their hues . As normally the " false colors" are developed in the converter ... and become amplified in the further process . I would go back ... and start from scratch , sometimes the canon files are having this red/green/ blue blotchy colors in dark areas . Only close inspection does help ... and one can look after it within DPP to a certain degree .

    Overall I would say I would like to see a bit more tonal range in the subject , as it is quite dark and does look flat . Again I think ... potential detail is not there , almost no structure in parts of the hide ??!!! Again difficult to say why that is ??!!

    But this can be well only my view ... do not want to be too critical Sanjeev ... just like to understand why the image turns out this way .

    TFS Andreas

    A quick tip .... raise the exposure to see what " strange " colors are present in the shadows , and treat them at that stage in the HSL tab inside DPP

    Nice view of this elephant out in the open. The framing is right on.

    Hello Sanjeev,

    What I like here most is POV, which makes the subject look very impressive. As well as the 'cleanliness' of the frame - and by this I mean there are no distracting elements, nothing to lessen the impact.

    Would like to see a bit more detail and emphasis on those wrinkles. Colours overall look good. I also noticed the bit of red coming through here and there, thought it came from the environment (red soils or vegetation), after wallowing or rubbing against trees.

    Thank you for sharing Sanjeev, and hope you enjoy the week-end!

    Kind regards,
    Gabriela Plesea

    [QUOTE=Gabriela Plesea;1233589) I also noticed the bit of red coming through here and there, thought it came from the environment (red soils or vegetation)[/QUOTE]

    Gabriela those visible reds are not natural soil color and there are even some " weird " looking greens in the dark areas .... that need to be addressed in the raw converter , as far as possible . Many times a question of color profile/ picture style used in the raw converter .... in this case DPP .
