Hello Srikumar,
Your Giraffe is certainly a beautiful animal with it's spindly legs, long neck and mane, black tipped horns and uniquely marked coat. You were fortunate to have captured this shot in such eye catching lighting. The warm colors enhance the overall attractiveness of the image. Focus is sharp throughout entire frame and I like the exposure. Well done!!

Hi srikumar,
Very nice capture of this giraffe Light and color are fantastic.


Bonjour Srikumar,
C'est tout simplement comme tu l'écris "A memorable time..." avec en plus, certainement, la joie d'avoir réaliser une immense photographie !!!
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Sri,
Beautiful moment and an effective composition, although I myself should prefer a little more from the ground and a little less from the sky. The lights you had are simply gorgeous and you used them the best way - I love your white balance here! Fantastic capture of a fabulous meeting, and an excellent, yet underrated image in my opinion.
Best regards, László

Hi Srikumar,
It has all together a different meaning.

Hello Srikumar

The place where is this Giraffe, with the light of the photo
and the POV you choose with the framing you gave,
it brings an beautiful atmosphere effect to the photo, TFS
