[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this picture at Jaldahapara National Park in West Bengal, where we made an elelfant ride to see the famous rhinos. I stood 1,5m in front of this huge animal, he was watching me with his tiny eyes and than allowed me take a look at his dental status - quite clean...
I used my F90X and scanned the photo afterwards with Epson 4990 Photo. I didn`t use Neat image to reduce noise to emphasize old skins structures.
Hope you like it!

Impressive shot Georg!
The POV is incredible!
The slight blur adds movement and atmosphere.
Superb image.
Well done,

p.s I hope you had a good time in India!!

Hi Georg,
I thought I had a close up of an elefant, but this beats mine for sure. It is a great photo of a sight not many of us have seen before. The aperture probably caused some lack of sharpness, but the photo just makes that less of an issue.

Hello George,
A different point of view on an elephant!
First time I see something like this, and I notice both teeth are broken... maybe stolen?
