I had captured this picture in Orpen, Kruger National Park, South Africa.

It was almost the time of sunset. We were returning to our camp. I saw a lonely Giraffe standing under a tree and eating its leaves. A beautiful light was all over the National park.

Hello Srikumar,
I am impressed by the magnificent sharpness and details of this image. The composition is wonderful. Very nice colors and outstanding clarity. It is a superb capture of a spendid animal. Lovely contrast against the background.

Hi Sri,
Beautiful and as said above, dramatic image. Probably with a little more foreground it may be a little more powerful, as I feel the giraffe too closed to the edge of the frame at the bottom. Otherwise very spectacular, indeed.
Best regards, László
