[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken at the Hide near Skukuza, this was late afternoon and we were the last ones out of here to get back to camp. Worth the wait though for the lighting and the quietness, broken only by the buzzzzzing of the mozzies!!!![SA slang for mosquitoes]

Used the Canon 580 Flashgun to just add a little light to the hippo, but he was at least 20 metres away at the time. Almost no work in pp except sharpen, convert, etc. My std workflow has not changed in the past few months.
Can't wait to get back to the park again. Hope you like and thanks for taking the time to look and crit. Tim

Hi Tim,
great timing on this one just as the hippo gives you this fabulous pose. Great light and lovely sun reflection on the water. POV, sharpness and colors are very nice.

Hello Tim,
This is a great close-up of this impressive animal. You caught him in a very great moment with excellent details and POV. This is very well done with superb lightning, colors and contrast. Thanks,

Good catch! Perfect frozen moment and dramatic color and pose. I'm surprised this shot hasn't collected more points...
