Buffett, one of two manatees permanently in residence at Mote Marine Laboratory, Florida. April 2009.

Increased the contrast, added some blue, and removed floating debris in the water via Paint ... I do not have Photoshop.

Have you ever read the comic "The worlds of Aldebaran" by Luiz Eduardo de Oliveira? There is a creature in it, called the Mantrisse, which gives exactly the same kind of feeling (especially in the Beltegeuse volumes). I highly recommend it to you! You'd like it

No, I haven't, but it sounds interesting, and something that I would love to read.

Thanks for the recommendation :)

No problem, I think you'll have a wonderful time reading it. It's a rather pictural comic which above all implies a lot of thinking about society and our (only one, even more precious) planet

Merry new year!

The composition is wonderful! I love the manatees shape in relation to the more jagged-linear lines of the background. And the colours are so softly soothing. Wonderful! :clap:
