I took this picture at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs, CO. This zoo is the only one in the USA built on a mountainside. This picture was altered by changing the background.

Thank you, Carol. xoxo
Thank you, Antanas. xo
Nicely composed and caught Lori ! It must have been an interesting place. :)xx[ Did he drop his Dentures ? :) ]
Thank you, James. I guess s/he wasn’t in the mood to smile. This is another experiment in background removal. The original background was all gravel. I am really having fun with this. xoxo
I’m an animal lover – great photo and great promotion!
Thank you, Gina. I love animals, too. xo
Great capture, Lori! Brilliantly composed! This looks great!
Thank you, Daniel. I am learning to remove backgrounds. I am very happy with the way this turned out. xo
You’re doing very well Lori ! I thought it was a green cement wall.
No, it is grass from the background of another picture. Some pictures are easier than others to manipulate. I am finding I can save some of my pictures by removing things in the background. xo
Wonderfully captured Lori – and it looks great with just a plain background.Now I have just read above that you created this green – great job!
Thank you, Sharona. I have had Corel for over a year but never had time to learn all this techniques. It is a lot of fun. xo
It depends on what you want to do – edits are a cool solution, though. If I don’t like a background, I walk around in an arc until it changes enough to look nicer – the varying bokeh can complete an image.
The problem with zoos is that we have a limited view and we can’t always get the angle we want. The background was all natural but the red soil and gravel detracted from the picture, I thought. The soft background makes the zebra stand out. x
Thank you, Scott. xo
Thank you, kj!! xoxo
