what an excellent looking photo of this elephant you have uploaded today,superb.You need not have any regrets about the man made beams that show up in this shot as animals do live near and with us and always have.The focus is on this big creature and the dynamic of the shot.I really like the way this elephant has thrown up the dust in a bid to keep insects at bay.Your POV and colour and focus put this animal across very well.Thanks for showing us this photo of the elephant living it's life and taking care of itself,a dust bath is better than no bath at all.

Prachtig mooie opname. Ondanks de steiger komt het heel natuurlijk over. Scherpte, diepte en kleuren zijn uitstekend. Schitterend die stofwolk uit zijn slurf, alsof hij een pijpje rookt. Het lage standpunt heeft ook een goede compositie opgeleverd.

Different look with the elephant blowin' dust out its nose, I like it. Don't think the wooden beams take away anything at all. I like the POV of this dust monster most of all :)

the dust is not adding a great bonus but it's a good shot,

Paul, Good photo in terms of technical issues. Also, the dust lends a sense of motion to the photo, hence a little drame.

This is a good action shot, something very original! Composition, details and colors are beautiful! The picture is strong enough to forget about those beams in background :) Well seen!
