[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Zebra is a part of the horse family, Equidae, native to central and southern Africa. They are most well known for their distinctive black and white stripes. The pronunciation is (IPA): /ˈziːbrə/ (ZEE-bra) in North America or (IPA): /ˈzɛbrə/ (ZEB-rah) in the United Kingdom.

Photographed in Safaripark Hilvarenbeek...
Of course it has not the African atmosphere as for example in Jan Hendrik's zebra image
and in all his portfolio images; Jan Hendrik is definitely one of my favourite photographers technically as well as aesthetically.

Hi Annick.
Very nice zebra portrait. I also like impressive green BG which highlights the features of the animal. Reproduction of the zebra I great as well as the cropping and composition. My compliments and TFS.

Hi Annick

Is it my impression or is this fellow a little sad? Look at his ears...
Anyway, even more, this is a oprtrait with an attitude...a feeling.
Again a job well done and a presentation with plenty of sharp details, charming natural colors [this time around the subject :))] and a DOF.
I never noticed teh difference in pronunciation before...perhaps i wasn't attentive enough :)

Cheers and TFS

Hi Annick,
Nice portrait photo of this Zebra. Good definition and sharpness.
I would like to see some action shots from your holiday?

Hi Annick,

I read your note with surprise. Thank you very much for your kind and gracious words.

You also sell yourself short. I'm a big fan of your images. There is certainly nothing to choose between our pictures. This is another one of your top-shelf portraits. You have the talent to get a super image out of the camera, and crop it to perfection. Very well done once again.
