I like it. :clap:

But bits of the sky and elephants look very bright. Maybe that could be toned down a bit?

I changed Hue and Saturation as far as I can remember, the original had a monochrome look about it to start off with. :hmz:

I like the post processing Scipio and the faint green glow of the thorny scrubs. do you use Photoshop for pp?

Scipio, awesome pic :thumbs_up: , has good depth and is nicely framed, I would however have cropped it a bit to get rid of the bright sky and possibly less of the tree on the sides :hmz:
