                            Exposure is too hot on the large elephant's ears and back, and too dark on the small elephant. Even with fixing that best I could...

                            ...the grass is too structured and looks like it was converted from a color image that had colors go over-saturated.

                            Better? Yes. Didn't realize you were working with a jpeg from a P&S, so that explains a lot. I would prefer if you can prefer some of the grass texture as a lot is lost, but somewhere in between the first and this would do it. The animals are much better.

                            The above is my D800 so yes I can retain texture etc.

                            Changed the colour a fraction in the grass.

                            Why they don't work for me. You've been on safari in East Africa, I've been on safari in East Africa. Of course we take a S load of elephant images as you see a S load of elephants. But which is the image that stands out from the, I was there memory shots? The first image is a stock image not very interesting, the second one/one's of a single animal are over exposed and again pretty stock. It may just be that these are shots that look better in color as well.

                            Liking the second one, but too closely cropped for me.
