[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today once again out of my kruger series,I wanted to try out something again and posted a B&W version as well in the WS,maybe you can have a look at it and loook what you think of it as I just played around with some settings in CS3 to get the effect I thought looked good,but some other ideas/WS are welcome,by the way a very common animal in the krugerpark,but unfortunatly not so many postings of this longneck,the giraffe is accompagnied by (only one visible in this shot)a few yellow billed oxpeckers.

Hope you like it and thanks for your comments,have a nice weekend.

Wonderful portrait with great detail. The bird - great!

Hi Paul
I like your portrait very much. Great natural situation. Maybe it is a little bit to dark. Nice background.
Best wishes

hi Paul, excelentshot with fantastic motive. Good POV

Hallo Paul,
Inderdaad weinig giraffe uploads.
Heb me zitten afvragen of dit nu een stier is of niet...
Ik dacht van niet...
Mooie plaat

Hallo Paul,
Prachtig scherpe foto, waarbij de ossenpikker de show steelt. Hoewel... de kauwende bek van de giraf mag er ook zijn. Fantastische details en diepte in de foto.

C'est ça être au bon endroit au bon moment. Bravo. Bon câdrage
Sujet intéressant.

Paul hello a superb catch of sight with this bird in premium on the giraffe, a portrait carried out well with beautiful colors well done

Bonjour Paul,joli portait de cette giraffe et de son petit compagnon,bien joué.

Cute Giraffe portrait Paul. Bird is a bonus. The only nit would be it's eyes are dark. I did a WS and lightened shadows and added some contrast. It didn't give much light to the eyes but a bit more contrast and light gave a more cheery light and color. I'll have to post it tomorrow as I have no more posts for today.

Hi Paul,

I like this picture very much. You also managed to get the rare yellowbilled oxpecker. Well done.


Great portrait, I love the bird nipping the ear!
