It was a lazy one and I had to pester him with my focus red light till he raised the head. I shot and had just a few seconds to drive away.
In a few days, I upload the same with an elephant.

Nice detail and pose, good light and exposure, might benefit with a slight sharpening to crisp the image up a little?

Hello Jean,
Beautiful capture, I love the Buffalo's expression
It looks like a scene form Robert De Niro's "Taxi Driver"..
"Are you talking to me?"

Hello Jean !
This is a wonderful picture ! Must be great to see this big animal from so close ! There are some nice details on the picture, natural colors, excellent composition and POV. The pose of the buffalo is great too, looks like he is winking at you with this one eye closed ! :-) Very well done !

Hello Jean,
I like the compo, POV and DOF.
Nit is the sharpening; good workshop.

This one looks really angry and mean. I like safariphoto's like this one. Well done.


Hi Jean, I really enjoy this shot, well composed with good sharpness but it would be just perfect if u add more colour and contrast, but that is just my suggestion :-)
