Hello Gerard,
Very nice photo of these muddy elephants in their natural environment. Maybe I should have cropped a little piece of the left side, the head of the elephant there is a bit distracting. Great sharpness, natural colours and composition. Good timing.
Regards,
Peter

Hi Gerard,

I really like this African shot. Great moment you caught. To put more an accent to the young elephant you could have cropped it a bit more. I mean its all about the mother elephant and her young. For the rest its a fantastic scene. I like the mud on the elephants and the ligth, colors and sharpness are excellent. TFS.

regards,
Zeno
