Around 06:00 PM, the sun is about to set down on Tsavo East. That's the moment the animals come to drink at the dam. The buffalos have arrived just after the elephants

Hello Jean! Wonderful scene. Amazing perspective. Original capture. Excellent effect. Well done!

Hi Jean!

I love the atmosphere of the picture, especially because of the dust cloud they make! The composition is very good too. And the shine on the back of the buffaloes.
I found the image a bit rotated to the right, so I tried a workshop correcting it. Then I tried to play with colors, to make the water blue and trees green, but I ended up in the recognition that I like your original colors a lot more! I upload anyway, just to show how this warm effect on your shot upgrades the whole picture!
Thanks much for sharing this beautiful shot

Best regards,

This is superb. You have captured the moodiness of the scene so well with your sepia-type colours. The dust gives the scene an extra special finish. TFS.

Great capture I can almost smell the dust in the air as I view your shot. You have truly captured the mood of the scene. Must have been an awesome scene to actually view. The only thing missing is some notes on your photo. Good job!! TFS
