[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Saw these two zebra heads in close conjunction going for the same grass, sharing the little there is. This was very early in the morning.
I find photo's of zebra's fascinating for their contrasting pattern of B&W stripes. Beautiful animals.
These are Burchell Zebra's BTW.

Shot in RAW format. Increased contrast slightly, decreased lighting. Cropped the bottom part of the original photo to let the heads stand out more. Sharpened the result. Resized for TN.

Wow, Edwin,
that's marvelous.
I had to look a little longer to see which stripe is which zebra ;-)
Excellent shot, I love it, thanks.
All the best for 2006, bye

Very clever, Edwin. I was attracted to the shot by the amazing sharpness of details and the vibrant alternation of black and white. I had to read your note and look really hard before "seeing" the two zebras. Well done and TFS. : )
Happy New Year to you and yours!

Nice composition, colours and detail. Love the way the Zebras almost merge and become one. TFS.
