Please accept my belated Christmas wishes, but we have been away for a few days. You came so close to this one that one can count the wrinkles on its trunk if you wanted to, the beautiful trunk of this magestic Etosha elephant is an eye-catcher. Framing is perfect, focus is good and I love the background, bringing out the colour of this giant to its full best. Thanks for the interesting note too. Best regards.

Erg mooie foto van deze imposante olifant. Fantastische diepte in de foto. Goede scherpte, standpunt en compositie.
Al het beste voor het nieuwe jaar,

This is one of your best photo's I've ever seen. You did right not to crop it in front otherwise it would not have the same depth as it has now. The clarity, details,sharpness and colours are absolutely excellent!! Stunning Boet!! Ten out of ten from me. Hope I'll be able to visit Etosha one day.
Lots of love,

É uma belíssima imagem com cores firmes e POV ótimo,bem apurado.Meus parabéns por esta bela captura.
Just what I thought, a truly magnificent shot of this massive Bull Elephant. The composition looks fine to me and the focus is tac sharp. The detail is excellent and the colors are true and natural. What an impressive beast!!
My first experience with elephants came as a child when a circus came to town. My mom had me and my brother by the hand and were walking towards the elephants when one broke loose from it's chain. The man in charge started hitting the elephant until he was able to stop it from running towards us. Mom picked my brother and I up by one arm and ran as fast as she could. The elephant trampled the man to death that very night. I will never forget that day as long as I live.
