Hello Rik,
What a scene..like a dream. Love the way you composed your shot showing these Giraffes running towards the dark sky. Most beautiful light too. A special bravo for this first shot!
Kind regards

Absolutely brilliant image of the majestic African grassland and the moving Giraffe herd, Rik. The picture shows the beauty of the scene flawlessly and tells us a story about those amazing animals in their natural habitat! Bravo!

Hello Rik,
very lively capture. The colors are lively and the mountains in the background is wonderful too. You have composed it very well in good lighting and sharpness.
These unique and adorable giraffes image are really pleasant.


Hi Rik,

Bad weather but good shot. It's almost surreal to see these lovely animals in those amazing lighting situation. A fleeting moment deftly captured.


PS: A cracker at the debut! kudos.

Bonjour Rik,
Bienvenue sur TN !!!
C'est avant tout un superbe paysage, bien composé, dont les girafes font partie ; la lumière est magnifique.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

GReat shot , beautiful light and scenery. It would be stronger if the animals were facing you, but you can't always control nature



Welcome to TN!
A very well composed scenic pic you have as your first one.
I like the contrasting colours of the grass and animals and the dramitic skyline. Good lighting, POV, DOF, sharpness and detail.

nice light and beautiful landscape, TFS Ori
