I liked the POV in this picture. The beautiful colours in your picture create a beautiful soothing mood. Your note is also very interesting...and throws light on the subject I never noticed before.
By the way, where did you click this picture?

This is an amazing scene. I don't think I'll see this in my backyard my friend George :-)
The sky and the trees are already splendid grand vision anchoring the elephant perfectly in the frame. Top class image and thanks for sharing.
Kind regards - Jusni

For sure this is a great wild animal-picture! Not only the attitude of the elephant is most interesting, but also the atmosphere created by the dry trees and vegetation and the slightly pink sky give to this picture something very special. Bravo!

Excellent deatil and composition George.
For all the saints ... What I can say about this? ... Looks like a publicity invited to travel to Africa! ... Congratulations ... amazes me the "relevance" of the elephant against the landscape .... Is it some kind of post processing effect? ... Is it HDR? .. Does it only with the camera perhaps? ... Here we see an overwhelming depth, you can almost touch the elephant kneeling on her elbows (or her wrists!)!

Excellent landscape with magnificent elephant, good pp work. Wish there was more space behind the elephant and more sky. tfs.
I think the most impressive African capture that I've ever seen until now. The clarity of the image, the natural colours of the skin of the elephant and the habitat are great. Excellent composition, outstanding POV and very good focus.

Superb! Some of your photos looks like a paint and this is one of them. Excellent work!
What first strikes me when seeing this is the wonderful light! WHat time of the day did you capture this or is there a storm coming up? A great view of the Elephant too against a wonderful natural background. Very beautiful!
TFS and best regards, Ulla

Ciao George, this is a wonderful Africa, fascinating composition with great creature in a fantastic natural ambientation, I like a lot beautiful trees and splendid sky with marvelous sunset colors, ciao Silvio
i think this photo it is one of the most if not
the most beautiful and excellent elephant photo
of TrekNature ! WOW ! you did very well to not
zoom the elephant and like this to have with him
that wonderful tree and also a view of his habitat,
the color tones of the background contribute
to the atmosphere effect of this photo with the
great density and contrast of the color tones,
the elephant is superbly focused with great
sharpness and details, TFS beaucoup

A very nice composition with this enormous animal with very beautiful coulours and scene.
In my opinion this image is photoshopped to the extreme, I would challenge you to display the HONEST original image in a workshop, if you don't I'll understand. It looks artificial to me.

wonderful colour presentation and definitely a special pose and stance from this mighty jumbo.
The dried grass and leafless tree with beautifully distributed branches add beauty to your composition.
The sky too is very pleasant with hues of crimson and grey add offer dramatic sky.
I love it as it depicts and reinforces the mental image of the African style wildlife.

Verdaderamente me ha sorprendido esta imagen, con esos tonos de colores, ese resplandor entre los arboles, que parece que el elefante esté realmente en 3D. Una imagen muy buena para mi gusto. Muy buen punto de vista.
Un saludo de Antonio

Trčs belle publication d'une bonne composition intégrant trčs bien le sujet dans un beau paysage bien éclairé et sous de magnifiques couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
I love the colors in the entirety of the image and the detailed lighting on the elephant is super. I agree as far as I know probably one of the nicest images of an elephant on TN. Well done George. :)

I love the look and feel of this picture...!!!
An extremely pleasing image of a majestic animal and of nature. The differnet huies and how they grade into one another is wonderful and so is the composition. I might have cropped off most of the bit of tree on the very left, what do you think? But excellent as is. Congratulaions. I enjoy looking at it very much.

Lovely expression on the elephant and good notes too. I liked the POV and the colors and the processing :-) and this picture impressed me for its creativity and thats a trait which i like a lot.
In my opinion a great job - using techniques like Photoshop isn't a crime! Perfect composition and great shallow DoF, special atmosphere - for me the result seems pleasant. Photography is one thing, feeling personal antipathy is another. Shouldn't be mixed as imho some other users did. This is a photographer forum. Thanks for sharing the great image.
Best regards, László
