[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had captured these Grazing Zebras in Kruger National Park. Light was bit harsh so followed 'Sunny 16' rule.

Now it's nice time to return and take rest in the lap of mother nature, leaving hustle bustle of our daily life :-)

Have a nice festive season.

Lovely. I like the composition, or superposition of the zebras.



Hi Srikumar,
Nice shot using the sunny f/16 rule, wonderful composition, colors and contrast. Great shot - but might be even more effective if at least one zebra (or each) might lift their head(s) to have an eye contact with the camera / photographer. Nevertheless, a pleasant image to look at, even with the partially hidden heads.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hello Srikumar,
Zebra are always a delight to view and this group shot is no exception. You have photographed them in fine detail and well saturated color tones. It would have been nice if you could have captured at least one more without its head being hidden, but then your title did say Zebra grazing;)
I love the exposure yet have to admit I have never heard of the sunny f/16 rule until now. I had to look it up on the web and can't wait to try it someday.

Ciao Srikumar, lovely composition with fantastic creatures, wonderful natural colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Srikumar,

The zebras are well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details of the zebras. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colours. Have a nice day.
