Karen Walzer September 09, 2006

Thanks Brinn, Tracey, Melissa and Peter. This was an old photo that I took at the zoo. He was actually in the water but for this image I used a flood filter. To give the image some depth, I extended the water behind him in PS. Although he did have a nice smile, I have to admit PS made him look just a touch happier. Thanks for the wonderful comments! #3288619
