    A slightly unconventional composition but I like it. The light appears rather harsh it may be worthwhile trying a little blending.

    Really like the detail and the texture on these elephants. The light was handled nicely. Nice view of the little one.

    I like it Sanjeev, but I would watch the sharpening, just a tad too much I feel and there maybe a halo running down the LHS of Mums rear leg.

    I feel the light is OK, but what it does need is a a couple of S curve adjustments to add a bit more contrast in the Tonal range IMHO, as the light is ver even.

    Hello Sanjeev,

    Very cute baby ele and composition works well for me. Even though Mom is only partially included in the frame, her presence enables us to appreciate the size of the little one as well as adds context to the 'story'.

    Well exposed and good choice of DoF. Agree with Steve, a few selectively applied curve adjustments would be beneficial in terms of tonality.

    Love those wrinkles on the subjects' skin, did you know they help regulate body temperature

    Thank you so much for sharing, I enjoyed viewing

    Kind regards,
    Gabriela Plesea
