stunning Graeme, just awesome!! i'll have to come back with points.. tfs

I like the power inside the scene,and the sky doing the BG, a goob shot.

Elephants are my favorite animal. Great shot, they almost look fake against the sky though. Not sure why. A little over sharpened maybe? Great shot still!

Hello Graeme
Nice colors and details. The composition is amazing with a natural elements and very clean.
Good Job

Hi Graeme,
Excelent capture of the elephants. Brilliant pose and details.
Photoshop effects are no plus in this pic. It looks un-natural because the colors of the grass are too saturated. The clouds are sharp while the depth of field stops much before. The detourage of sky against grass is too visible. Please keep in mind that only small change like levels are allowed on TN. Not a background switch. Also changes should be explained.

Anyway the pic is much impressive. It is also done with a wide angle, from a short distance and with a POV from lower. All this combined is sure a plus.
