Left is a pic thatwas too blurred. However, I liked the composition so much that I did not want to miss this photo. So, tried my hand at editing. The patches on giraffe's body were retouched with paintbrush,the area outside was darkened and finally the entire frame was given a 'canvas' effect, with GIMP. Result is the pic on the right. Looks very beautiful in small size - I have it as wallpaper on my mobile. Would appreciate your views.

Raghu,

What software did you use to get the 3D effect?

Hi Don, I used GIMP. However, I picked up the idea from Walter, who uses Photoshop and a plug-in called OOB (see http://forums.steves-digicams.com/fo...mp;forum_id=55). At the level of my 'expertise' it takes a lot of manual touching and retouching. May be PS has automated functions in OOB.
