Hello Frans,
lovely image from your archives, with pleasant sharpness and good depth of field. In the workshop I have corrected the white balance slightly by adding a bit of blue and cyan colors. Have a great evening Frans!
Regards,
George Veltchev

Hello Frans,
Excellent image of elephants, my favourite animal because they are so majestic. They sadly are often subjected to humiliation and even torture. The textures on theit skins are very pleasing and are very well shown here and the affection of the mother for the calf is not difficult to imagine. Well done.

Beste Frans
Ek kyk elke dag na die webcam van die Addo Park op my rekenaar so tussen die werk deur en sien so gereeld hoe die olifante kom speel en bad in die water. Daar is meeste van die kere kleintjies by en is dit altyd so lekker om te kyk na hulle manewales maar ook om te sien hoe hul interaksie met die ander olifante het. Tegnologie is darem wonderlik. Om te dink ek sit hier duisende kilometers weg van die Addo af, tog kan ek so 'n stukkie van die pragtige park meemaak. Van al die webcams is Addo die besigste en dan Orpen, Satara en heel laaste die cam by Nossob. Dit is eintlik baie interessant om so elke nou en dan te loer wat daar aangaan, en het ons eenkeer 'n helikopter sien land, 'n man se hand met 'n horlosie aan gesien en ook eenkeer 'n man wat daar rondloop. Ek dink egter dit is die personeel wat die cams kom nasien. Baie dankie dat jy hierdie prag foto gedeel het. Dit is 'n baie spesiale oomblik wat jy vasgevang het. Vriendelike groete
Anna
