Etosha Giraffe

This handsome chap stood right along the side of the road.

The original image has the giraffe very central in the image. To improve the overall composition, I went to work in Photoshop and moved him slightly more to the left where he looked a lot happier. The grass near the bottom of the original image is very bright which seemed to draw the attention to the bottom of the image, so I darkened the grass slightly.

We now had an image with four strong ingredients: nice Composition, nice balance of brightness (Tonal Balance) nice Colour Harmony, (orange and blue) and a nice Nature Story of a feeding giraffe.
