Giraffe Love

Giraffe Love Painted

Giraffes at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, California (Dec. 2012).

What could make this parent and child snuggle more adorable? Notice the heart-shaped spot on the parent’s neck just below the child’s nose. Too cute! And not a result of any photo manipulation.

What I did do to this photo was take a crop of the full photo (shown below), get rid of the green grass as best I could, and apply a “paint brush” filter to turn it into an image reminiscent of a painting.

This is the original crop (minus the grass). I thought it was too noisy as is. That is why I made the above described adjustments.

Do you have a preference? Any suggestions on how you would have “fixed” the cropped image? Or do you just want to enjoy the love?
