About the Image(s)

My artwork for July 2024 is of a mother Rhino and calf, in the wild, taken from my vehicle, with the necessary camera support. I selected the image and divided it into several sections. The selected sections were processed in PS layers with several filters and blend modes to achieve the result. The aim was to emphasize the Rhino skin and create an oil painting effect, with the animals standing prominently out, from the background. I experimented with various blend modes and or brush strokes to add more colour touches enhancing the image and especially the animals.
This submission, out of 5, was the choice of my liking. All comments/critiques are more than welcome.

Wow. This is the first time I have seen the oil paint filter really enhance an image. Great job in the background as it really sets the stage and the small and soft effect on the Rhinos adds real awareness and a more unique dimension of the subject. Also, the warm tones to the Rhinos add immensely to the impact. Just beautifully done.   Posted: 07/10/2024 17:31:39
