[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I think it is about time I started submitting photos again. We have just come back from a visit to Kruger National Park. This is one of the elephants I managed to get a photo of, quite close to the road. This was our first outing to Kruger Park with the new Nikon P510, a really fantastic camera.

Hi Peter,spectacular capture of this big guest of Kruger Park! I like your point of view to create this imposing perspective,spectacular details and colors too.Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hello Peter,

a very nice shot indeed, all the more impressive by the low point of view. I hope to see this guy next august.



Being absent of late, I was not aware of yours sir... but I can see why you wish to present at least this huge beast. You give it added dimension from the low angle in which you like to use in many of your images. Well seen and in great contrast...

Hi Peter,
very nice and interesting elephant. Great point of view. Very good light. Many details.
Thanks for sharing,

Bonjour Peter,
La prise de vue en contre-plongée accentue judicieusement l'importante masse du sujet bien valorisé dans une belle attitude.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Peter,
Fantastic shot. Very nice portrait of a beautiful elephant.
Excellent detail and perfectly sharp photo.
Regards Jiri.

Hi Peter,
This almost looks like the one that made us reveres for at least 400m on the Lower Sabie road to Skukuza. You've managed to capture it beautiful with great details and color. Congratulations on the new camera.
