This is what we had to clamber over - but much, much bigger!

A welwitschia (male plant). It is growing on a slope that would very, very occasionally have water flowing over it - say once in 50 years!

Although I feel there is nothing wrong with James' original presentation I just wanted to see if a closer crop would give a some more impact to the zebras. I cropped out a little of the OOF foreground, the mountains, and moved the zebras a bit out of the center. I think getting rid of the few darkish spots at the very front is less distracting. In the original my eyes kept going to the mountains for some reason, and now the high shadow contrast on the two right hand side zebras brings my eye right to them. Just some thoughts.... : )

I removed some of what I felt was oversaturated blue in this image. I used "hue and saturation" blue slider on adjustment layer. I like how it brought out the warmer light on the peaks in the distance.

Hi James

Primarily this was done just to add a bit of sky in front of the eagle, but then I got a bit of an urge and played around with some of the other settings.

I made a slight adjustment to the "Levels" by making the photo a little darker in order to gain some exposure on the white tail. Then I applied the "Shadows/Highlight" tool mostly at default setting, but I adjusted the white slider to 50% darkness. This made the sky a bit too dark perhaps, but I'm not sure the sky might normally look at this location. Finally I gave it a wee bit of "USM" just to overcome the unsharpening effect that the optimisation had on the photo.

I hope you approve of the post processing.

Best regards
Loot
