[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Anyone who has traveled through Africa has probably seen a sight like this. Zebras lock heads, not because they are in love, but for protection. By doing this they can see in all directions and spot a predator more easily than if they just stood by themselves. But it does look romantic doesn't it?

Your opinion is wanted - would this be better with a closer crop? Or does the background add to it? I do like those Acacia trees. The shapes are so beautiful, but I don't know that they add here.

Oh, and I would love to get a site with a map of the areas in Tanzania. Which of the listed areas would the Serengeti be in? I put Arusha because a "state" was required. I don't believe that is correct though.

I like this shot very much, not only is it precious but has an artistic quality about it. Very nicely done Linda. :)

Hi Linda, this is another great shot from your trip to Africa. I haven't been, so this pose is a new one for me. Very interesting.

I have done a little playing on the side. What you have is good and not wrong, but with the strong symmetry in this shot, I think a crop would benefit. I have gone for an 8 x 10 landscape format, and cropped to enhance the zebras while trying to keep your Acacia Trees.

I had some time so I had a quick look on google for a map of Tanzania. Here's one that should work for you - http://www.citypopulation.de/Tanzania.html . Just click on the arrows for the regions on the left.

Thanks, John
