A great action scene showing the movement of the wildebeest in native habitat. The subtle use of Topaz Glow is very effective. It allows you to maintain some important detail in the scene, yet emphasize the fluid movement of the wildlife. Excellent work, Dave. 8)

Beautifully done, Dave! I always think that Wildebeest have a somewhat prehistoric appearance, and the way you have treated this lovely capture combines the effects of a great photo with the qualities of fine, ancient cave paintings. When you click on the high rez version, you can really see what I mean. This is another one that would make a brilliant print IMO. Well done!!

Love the effect, Dave- this is a must see uncompressed to feel the full effect and see the eyes. A real work of art in every way!
