[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A whole bunch of giraffe were congregating at the foot of a hill at Mashatu game reserve just before sunset. I was able to take this pic at 1/15th of a second, with the camera resting on a bean bag. Contrast and sharpnes have been slightly adjusted with Nikon View Editor.

Hello Daniel

I love the silhouette of the Giraffes. The colours in the sky is spectacular. Awesome work. Thanks.

Hi Daniel,
Nice scenery, warm atmosphere and because of the superb contrasting silhouettes you succeeded in producing an original giraffe picture. Sharpness acceptable keeping in mind that it was taken with 1/15. Good job! TFS.

What a unique 'sunset' photograph. It almost seems choreographed that most of the giraffes were looking straight on and the rest were exactly side-on just so you'd have the best silhouettes. I really like the composition and the colours.

Superbe image en ombres chisoises... je veux dire africaines !

Bonjour Daniel, ce panorama de giraffes en contre jour est magnifique; j'aurai legerement reduit en hauteur la partie noir en bas. Superbe ciel. Félicitations Didier.

Superbe image qui développée sur papier en grand forat pourrait donner un magnifique poster. Bravo auteur.
