Hi Paul

Nice to hear you have a good and working internet connection on board! :) I trust this means we will be seening more of you here in TN :)

Another splendid photo from your portofolio and especially if it's something so rarely seen here.
The POV and DOF of this one are great and the natural colors are wonderful.
It's really great to see them where they belong - in their natural habitat :)

Cheers and TFS

Hi Paul,
Congrats with the internetconnection at see.
Love your shot of the Rhino (one of my favorite) great job.

Hi Paul,
A nice shot on this White Rhino. Man that is one massive animal. Good exposure has rendered nice subtle and accurate colors. Detail looks great. I would love to see this in person myself someday.

With all the technology that is becoming available our world is becoming smaller and smaller.
A well presented Rhino.
Prefer the original.
Well contrasted colours.
Well composed.
Best regards, Mario.
