Ostrich in long grass

Photographed in Tanzania’s Tarangire National Park,  an ostrich moves through tall grass.

The continuing experimentation with digital image processing.   I did both a monochrome version and a colour version of this image and liked both.  Then I decided to blend the two effects and arrived at a muted colour effect which I think ends up being pleasing and subtle. The colour component was processed using Color Efex Pro including the border effect.
