The rhino and I know...

Using software to fix or enhance an image is standard practice.  In this case, I didn't fix anything and you can argue that I didn't enhance anything either.  But, I sure as heck made this shot look a whole lot different, and that's all this is about.  It's fun to take something and make it look entirely different, especially when the initial image is bland, boring and uninteresting.  So, I gave into the temptation of a few software programs, and this is the result.  For the record, the rhino likes his new look...

Rhino at rest

While walking around the San Antonio Zoo, we came across the rhino enclosure.  I think rhinos are interesting - they seem somewhat prehistoric to me.  Anyways, this guy was just standing there when we first arrived, and I tried to get some shots but nothing was too exciting.  Anyways, he meandered about for a short while and then plopped down for a nap.  I was able to walk to the other side of his enclosure to get this shot.  Zoom in a little and presto!  Doesn't it seem like zoo animals are always napping?  I guess they get bored just like we would if we were cooped up forever.  One day I would love to visit Africa and get some shots of real wildlife, doing whatever they do in the wild - probably napping!
