this is awesome Isabel! great eye to eye shot. did you use the filter to warm the sky? overall its a great effect, well done. #172807

Isabel L September 26, 2004

Thanks Imran!
Well the donkey and the sky are 2 different pictures that I took. The original donkey shot had an ugly sky so I tested different sky pictures to put as the new sky background? and then I came up with this. #806135

Isabel L September 26, 2004

Hmm a lost comment:

This is really funny. Your title and photograph go hand in hand. It looks as if its nose is pushing against the other side of my monitor. You captured nice detail and color. Just one of those photos you can't help but smile at :)
