I had a rough time with this one. I could not quite get the feeling I wanted. This was the closest. The Donkey Boys, Alexander in the background and Sebastian in the foreground are brothers in that they are from the same herd. They lived wild in Northern Arizona’s Black Mountains before they came to me - still wild. I’ve had them for twelve years now and they are like big puppy dogs.
Here was the original photo.
Sometimes it may be better to leave the original alone. Criticisms welcomed.
