[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had captured this picture of herd of elephants in Kruger National Park during our afternoon drive from Orpen to Satara.

They were resting in a small water body and you could see the mark of water on their body. They are always dangerous, mainly when little ones are with them. So better to maintain good distance.

Hi Sri,

Very nice shot, and the mark of water / mud on the elephants makes it even more interesting! Beautiful bunch of giants. I love the composition and the semi-panoramic format, and from the technical side the perfect light management (great usage of sunlight, but no overexposion on the white cloud in the right upper corner). Superb shot!

Not fully understandable though why myself, the 38th viewer of the image, am the 1st one who bothers to write a comment on the photo at all.

Kind regards from Ireland, Lásszló

Hello Srikumar,
An impressive sight to view in the wild, definitely not something we see here in Ohio:) I noticed the water mark right off the bat which is pretty neat. Sharply focused and displaying beautiful rich colors. The uneven colors of the sky seems a bit unusual, perhaps a storm was brewing? The baby, as is always the case, is just adorable.

Ho Srikumar
Wow. What a lovely image. The watermarks on all the animals and the full watermark on the baby elephant are beautiful.

great block :) greetings Ori
