Critiques [Translate]

I can not understand how we have distracted so much your fellow TrekNature, Vik, and we do not go to criticize this great, but great work ... my sincere apologies. It is really masterful this composition of monumental type, which connivantly conveys the enormity of the volume of these chubby monstrous owners of the African rivers. The immense bodies are coupled harmoniously to one another as in a puzzle for giants. The placidity of the dream of these pachyderms is so contagious that it almost makes us yawn and yearn for the happiness of the girls lying next to them, on the soft and somewhat moist sand. A separate chapter deserves the sharpness of the finest details of the skin, with its net of microcracks, its shades gray-blue and those roses so charming that give the hippos a certain reminiscence of pantagruelélicos babies. The final touch is the sand stroke at the base of the photograph, completing this interesting minimalist work with two elements: hippos and sand.
