[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

I like the desolated background and the fact that they are all facing the same directions (like clones)

Zebras behind.

Sad: The Amboseli desert was a lake before. It is doomed to become even more dry. Then the largest animals like elephants and buffalos will disappear.

Buffalos look so peaceful. Yet no one is allowed out of the vehicule as they are likely to charge with no warning.

ISO 64

Thanks for looking

Hi J M

I agree - your shot gives a great impression of desolation - all buffalo facing the same way really good too.



Very good composition. It surprises me to see such desolation as lately there has been considerable rain. I assume you must have taken this photo some time ago?

Bonjour JeanMarie,
Funny how the buffalos kind of spread out evenly across the plain, almost look like it was planned that way. They are amazing to watch, and sometime they will stare at you while they eat. Very nice shot with some zebras in the background and the openness of the field. Merci

Hello JeanMarie

A well composed shot of this buffalo herd.
They seem to be on the march,the shot reveals a sense of motion.
Very good POV,they seem unaware of you being there.
I like the view of the other animals in the BG.
Nicely done.


Hello JeanMarie,

Great nature scene of Kenya!
It's interesting in buffalos walking same direction for me, and also living together with the zebra that see it behind the buffalo is also interesting. Techically, it's better to improve some points. One is that the baffalo of right side is cut to the half, secondary it's better to add the saturation because it seems a little flat image for me. I did a workshop, yet this is my personal taste and I hope that you don't mind.
