[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had captured this picture in Kruger National Park,Mpumalanga,South Africa.It was a great moment to see one of the Big Five so close.
The day was sunny,but interplay of light and shade continued through out the day.
The place was little bit rough and I think they were there may be due to salt.
It was a small herd.After this sight we were infront of a huge herd of Elephants who were crossing the road.In future I will post it too.

Thanks for viewing...

Hello Srikumar

Hello Srikumar
Nice capture of this elephant group.
good natural ambiance,

Hello Srikumar,
A great image with elephants. Natural colors are especially beautiful. Details are excellent and the overview of entire herd look gorgeous.
Very nice composition!

I could not even imagine being in a position to get a shot like this. What an amazing experience. I am not an expert on photography, but why does the elephant at the bottom, second from the right looks so skinny. It looks a little off as if they should be wider and shorter. What setting do I use to elongate a photo like this? With that said I love the photo, especially the baby!

Hello Srikumar,
照的清晰 真是太偉大的視野
有這多象 個個神情動作都不同 真得很搶眼
尤其那隻小象 好可愛啊
構圖美麗 背景原始

Hello Srikumar,
Natural and pleasant picture of a herd of elephants occupied to eat or rest..
Lovely presence of a bay too. Fine picture taken in Krueger Park.
Kind regards

Hello Srikumar.

Congratulation for this lovely post, captured in the Kruger Park. Your picture is full of the life of this herd of elephants.

Point of view interesting. Maybe could it have be more "dynamic" to realize your picture as a "from below" picture (if technically possible). In that way, you could have better given the idea of the tall size of the elephants. But, probably, was it no very easy?

Good composition of the picture and proper management of the space inside of the frame.

Sharpness and depth of field properly managed. Colors and saturation could have be slightly better and more pronounced.

Thank you.

All the best.
