Thanks Frank, Mary Anne. Photoshop just amazes me everytime I push myself to learn something new. -- Mark

Excellent PS job - I saw the original version and I like this better. I also support the idea of including the manes of the zebras (compared to the previous version).

I do like it better now. Did you enjoy the cloning? I remember the first time someone in the Challenge suggested that I clone out a busy seemed to take forever, but it did improve the impact of the photo. Have fun Photoshopping.

Well I tried your suggestion Mary Ann and I think it is better without the third zebra there. I had to learn some things in Photoshop so forgive me if it's noticeable. Thanks for the suggestion and hopefully this is a better entry. I really appreciate the comments on these challenges as it helps me to improve. Cheers -- Mark

Well, I think the zebras are "close up" one to another. Also, the third zebra lets the viewer realize that it is not a mirror image spliced, but a real couple of zebras.

this image totally caught my attention. not sure if it is my monitor but it seems a bit bright. i agree with aam... cropping out everything but the heads may make the shot more on topic. dorys

Great photo! but not sure where "close up" comes in. Would suggest to crop it to include the two heads only.
The symmetry is striking, very well done indeed.

Striking composition, but I think it would benefit from including the manes of the two zebras. Also, would you consider cloning out the third zebra?
