[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of many we saw on the last trip here. Bad lighting on the first few days meant taking advantage of the small window of light we got the day before we left. Standing on the side of the road watching the rest of the herd on the other side of the road.

RAW, converted, levels and colour balance, smart sharpen, crop and resize.

Hi Tim,
this is a very good picture.
IMO it's a bit soft, you could add a bit sharpen, otherwise it's great. Well composed, very good POV an nice colours.
Good use of the DOF, the animal stand out necely from the BG.
Excellent work.

WOW! excellent shot!:) I salute:)
