Hello Gerard,

Exactly or he wait on the photographer.
Nice pose, you chose a very well moment.
Perfect focus on the animal.
Sharpness and clarity be superb. TFS.
Excellent captured nice composed.
Very well done, TFS

Warmest regards,

Hello Gerard,

an good sharp picture with pov from this Gnou.
Maybe a little shadow/hihlight by his head.
I think it's to dark there and loss of details.
Fine natural colours.


Hola Gerard

Buenos cuernos aue tiene este ÑU, buena composición, aunque el solo te ha jugado una mala pasada y deja al animal con la cara y parte del cuerpo algo oscura. Perfecta nitidez, colores naturales y buen POV.

Un saludo de Antonio

Hello Gerard,
what an animal. Thebackground too show the beauty with lots of other animals.
Exciting shot that is hard to get.


Superbe prise de vue Gérard
Très jolie pose de ce bel animal. Quelle netteté! Bien joué!
il doit se préparer pour sa migration
Excellente présentation.


Hello Gerard,
Very impressive pose you have captured this Gnou. I like colours, details, POV and DOF. Well done!

Wonderful shot here of this magnificent bull Wildebeest. I just really like the way you've captured him by himself...with the mane standing up the way it is. The little Springbok (I believe), off in the distance add a nice background touch. Very nicely done.
