Description: 1/200, f 4.5, 105 mm, ISO 400
Photographing elephants at the Atlanta Zoo is a challenge; at least for me! She is the same color as her surroundings and as she came closer the railings were in the way of a full face shot. So I had to crop her, applied several filters, then painted the BG B&W for contrast. For that reason she's going into DD. Hope she likes it there!
