    Hello Andreas,

    Cute Ele enjoying a mud bath Err... I would not say the afternoon was boring, after all...

    Love the pose but especially colours and textures on the subject. Well exposed. Background looks really nice.

    You say "slightly cropped for comp" - have you any more at the bottom of the frame, looks a bit tight to me?

    Otherwise, sharpness and detail just great. Beautifully processed. Love that light on the Ele's face and expression, looks like he's smiling and enjoying himself tremendously

    What lovely sighting, must have been fun to watch and photograph and I hope Anette got some nice shots here too.

    Have a lovely afternoon Boetie, thank you for sharing,

    Kind regards,
    Gabriela Plesea

    Super processing, I like the lighting too. Shame you needed to crop, a little more top and bottom would have been good.

    Thanks Jon and Gabriela .... for your kind comments .

    No more room on bottom , a tiny bit more on top but the spray was not fully in the frame. I ma actually ok with the tightness .... just wish i i had the full spray in the frame .

    Cheers Andreas

    The expression on the elephants face is great. Love all that mud and or course the mud on the elephant. Must have been a neat experience.
