Details on the elephant look astonishing. It almost looks like placed from outside, especially on the upper part (of the elephant)

Curious to know your thoughts behind this.

Looking forward to hear from you

thanks both. Many a times we take pictures of natural subjects and make them abstract or give it life and emotion. Here I found myself right in the opposite direction. One non- photographer friend said it looked like made of Cast Iron with Silver tusks. So I made the elephant like a statue and inanimate expect the tail that betrays some life.
That is the reason I thought of sharing ....I was in the exact opposite direction here :)
@ Aditya in some way you said " like placed from outside "

Art is about what is inside rather than what is outside

Absolutely well processed n presented to echo your thoughts, Raj. Indeed, only the tail makes it alive!

Loved the tones on this, Raj and the Flowery BG and silvery Tusks.
Would have liked a little wider frame though to enjoy the 'Maximus' more.
