Playing with Topaz Studio and felt this treatment retains the feeling and impression of this Elephant.  Calm.  Serene.  Dignified. 

Please feel free to view uncompressed.  Thank you for looking and wishing you all the best of health.

Love your treatment of this beautiful elephant! The texture in the elephant is perfect. Really glad you left the grasses hanging down from it's mouth.

Thank you Diana.  Must confess I am a sucker for the little details, as they are often the story tellers.   Best wishes for health and 2021.

You already put the words in my mouth- "Calm, Serene, Dignified". You have really achieved this lovely mood-it makes me feel so peaceful. Best wishes and good health to you now and for the upcoming year. Thank you for all your beautiful creations and thoughtful posts.

Really interesting take on the elephant....probably my favorite animal since I was a kid. As others have stated I also like the fact you didn't edit out the grass that he was eating at the time. Tastefully done in an impressionistic style. Well done.
