Pachyderm at Lunch - After

Uploaded: December 16, 2002


A much more appealing photo in this photographer's opinion. PhotoImpact5 to the rescue with Clone, Average, Unsharp Mask, Smudge, Blur, Punch and Pinch. The rock clones are borrowed from both foreground and background so as not to look to "copied". I'm fairly satisfied that is doesn't look too "touched up". I was going for the "natural zoo environment" look. Did I do it? I'd like to hear your opinion.

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.


The following truth is one of the core philosophies of BetterPhoto:

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
