[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a young Burchell's zebra.
It is one of the animals I photographed here.
It is an attempt to apply the golden mean in the aspect ratio and the rule of thirds vertically as well as horizontally.

Gender unknown. Flora identification unknown.

Photographed from Toyota (open window, no beanbag, IS on)
PP workflow subsequently in Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop CS3.

Thanks for looking and have a nice weekend.

Bonjour Annick,
Excellente composition en effet. Image très naturelle et charmante avec ce petit zèbre curieux de ce qui se passe. Couleurs très fines aussi. Excellent, comme d'habitude

Hi Annick,

Another great Safari picture from you. Great pose, composition and POV. Sharp details and nice BG. Great work!

Have a nice weekend!



Hi Annick!

Hmm, funny, sounds as if I would write to my daughter... Annick!


The difference is, that she doesn't take beautiful wildlife pictures as you do! This one is marvellous, well put on stage and nicely composed.

Kind regards


Hola Annick, qué bonita, luz muy buena y color. Parece un ejemplar joven y sano, la fotografia nos muestra perfectamente su habitat. Una fotografia muy bien compuesta. Un saludo

Hi Annick. I think i never get the rule of two thirds right. You have captured a fine picture of the young Zebra . with a nice pose as if he is ready to make a run for it at any moment. good natural colours. well done TFS.

Have a nice weekend.
