Another view of the one that was 6 metres away while I was on foot behind a game fence pole! Read the story on the other post.

RAW, converted, levels and balance, added velvia plugin, smart sharpen slightly, crop, resize and post.

Comments please. I will post another with a tight crop on the face for effect later. Cheers

Hello Tim!
Very nice capture.Sharpness,colors,
clear details,POV,expression on face
are wonderful.I think it will be
better with a tight crop,and hope
to see it soon;)

Nice work Tim. Love the face. Lots of charachter here. Crisp, clear and sharp. Well done. Thanks.

Hi Tim,
this is a powerful shot wiht great POV and composition.
Very good details and nice colour but IMO you could and a bit more contrast.
Excellent work.

Hi, Tim.
Very nice portrait shot. Composition is very good for my eyes. Good sharpness and colors.
Straws in mouth add a lot.

Man! Those are some horns! Love the composition. I agree with Gert. It calls for more contrast. There is too much midtone and not enough contrast to make the picture "pop". It all looks a little wahed out and very easy to fix. I think that close shots of animals really need the eyes to make a statement. Here they are weak. I just tried it out. I guess one should practice what they preach! Sometimes edits are easier said than done : ) see workshop.

Tim, No time for comment. Well deserved ;-)Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning. Benjamin Franklin, 1706-1790

Excellent head on POV. Very good detail and natural colours.

Good job

Excellent shot Tim! This "mbogo" looks very dangerous! I wouldn't like to be in front of him! I like your composition. Colors and sharpness are great. TFS!

My reaction to this photo is amazement, that in this day and age, one can still view such creatures like this.

He looks to be a remnant from prehistoric times and his eyes say; that it has been a long journey...

Great job, thank you Tim!
