I've seen these turtles stacked several high but today this was the best I could manage for my Yertle picture. I think it still gets the idea across, just not as well as a bigger stack.

PP - converted from RAW, cropped, levels, white balance, increased saturation, burnt shells a little, cloned out one blade of greenery in foreground, USM, resized, USM, increased saturation/color on turtle markings, cloned out a couple of hotspots

Cool turtles. Weird texture in the photo. Sharpening process? Nice image though.

Wish you could see more face of the turtles, but the colors are nice. odd angle.
