Hi Annick. The light in this one is first class just lightng up the face and part of the body. It just shows what difference light can do for a picture. This gives a very good side view of this beautiful Giraffe. and warm colours. well done TFS.

Hallo Annick,
Prachtig zo in de ondergaande zon. De contrasterende kleuren met de achtergrond zijn oogstrelend, om eens een ander woord te gebruiken. Jammer van die vlekjes, vuiltjes boven in de foto.
Uitstekende scherpte, zelfs de vliegen zijn te tellen.

Hi Annick !

A beautiful picture.
Some colors very clear and beautiful.
A beautiful evening,

A fine portrait again, towards the setting sun Annick, the structural details of the face and distal neck region are startling in this lateral aspect. TFS this fine image my friend.

Hi Annick,

Mate that evening light is just superb, no matter what the subject your going to get a great shot, this Giraffe makes it that much better with the colour and the patterns and the light falling on it.
Such an intence look on him too, perfect sky, t.f.s

Cheers Rick :)

Oddly enough I was just remarking to Asbed on stabilizers...Very nice..no bean bag for me..I am a hand held guy and learning more about it all the tim4e...thanks Annick. Another nice post!

Good to see you back after a short break, Annick.
The Giraffe looks elegant in this portrait against the background of deep blue sky.
Many thanks for sharing this great picture.

Hi Annick,
Great to see You're back, I was afraid we loose You, too, like we lost Howard ('marhowie') for example in the "we-have-the-right-to-use-your-images" storm. You returned with a fantastic shot, great diagonal composition with the giraffe head, nice lights and as always from You, perfect sharpness. Congrats for this masterpiece.
Best regards from Hungary, László

Ciao Annick, great portrait of superb creature, splendid light and colors, excellent sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Excellent details. I love how detailed it is. Perfect sharpness, exposure, focus and very details.
Best wishes,

Hi Annick,
A nice portrait of this beautiful Giraffe. Very well composed with sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Annick, you seem to be fond of this animal and I have seen many of your picture. Nothing wrong with that. The shot is so beautiful. Ganesh
