What a great shot of one of my favourite animals! It just made me laugh because if they had not been grazing, you would almost certainly have had to use a portrait style composition!
It is interesting that one of the animals has given you eye contact whilst the other is delicately feeding!
Good off-centre composition and nice details of thir markings and the environment!

Awesome photo where you show us more than only the animals but also part of their habitat. The cloudy sky helped you out perfectly. No harsh shaddows and rich colors.

Yet another wonderful shot from your endless repository of photo ops. This one is great as well - I like the bright yellow flowers in this shot. That doesn't happen too often in pictures from Africa - usually everything is nicely dried up. Anyways, great job! TFS,

Great shot of these giraffes. The poses are complimentary and add movement to the image. Great detail throughout and the splash of vivid yellow adds interest.

I didn't know there were so many subspecies of the Giraffe! I like the markings on these, they are very beautiful! Great sharpness and beautiful colours. Excellent composition too showing the Giraffes by the beautiful yellow flowering tree which they seem to be enjoying!
Many thanks and cheers, Ulla

Splendid shot of this Giraff couple with such lovely colours and sharp details. They look huge in comparison with that tree and the yellow bloom looks magnificent. I like the natural surrounding. Excellent DOF, POV and composition. Kudos.
