[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Driving one day in the Moremi National Park, we were held up by this guy. I used a beanbag to stabilize. After crossing the road, he uprooted a tree.

I will try to post a WS of this guy sharpened- I have no experience with PS'ing things, so let me know what's better.

well ian the sharpened one is deffinatley the better image, the shot gives a real feel for the size of this elli.
it could do with a few more notes about where you were and the beastie imaged + camera and any post work done, it is part of the TN thing, there are plenty of good examples and some pretty amazing notes from which to take some hints of how to do it.

This is beautifull - Africa is a like to see it. Very good composition and color.

Well done and thanks for posting

The WS is really better, well caught even if the focus on the Elephant face is a bit soft.

Wow ! Mack Trucks would be jealous on your character !
