[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I can't take credit for this one as it was shot by my girlfriend as I was watching this giraffe. I thought I would include it here anyway.

We had an amazing time at the Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Park. Two minutes before this shot I had mentioned that I wished we would run into some giraffes as I hadn't seen any that day. This was the first of many that we saw in the next 1/2 hour.

Very good compiled shot. Very creative. Looks like it might be slightly tilted to the left. Good work. TFS

I love it. The composition gives me a better idea of the giraffe's size (although objects in mirror are closer than they appear ;-)
It also shows just how close you were to the animal.
Your girlfriend did a great job.
Glad to hear you saw more giraffe too!

Great Creative Photo
