That's very beautiful. Did you use Lightroom or something to get that effect? Would you tell me how you did it? Thanks Pen

Hi Pen,
A similar result often occurs when you use shadow highlight -- the background goes a bit fuzzy (especially if you lower midtone contrast) -- but the colour of the animal that was underexposed, usually becomes unnaturally reddish brown -- you see a lot of it in certain photographers' pics -- eg. that set of lioness with cubs you see under mammals in Kgalagadi...
Like make-up, Photoshop works best when you don't really notice it!
God bless,
