Hi Annick I've been really busy with lots of things these days, but i said myself i wasn't going to let a photo like this go...no matter what! It's again absolutely amazing! The pose you captured from this impressive elephant is terrific - comming to you and i'm again fascinated by how well an f/2.8 worked here. The effective DOF is perfect, keeping the entire subject in impressive focus (even the back legs...which i have to confess i would have imagined would get at least a little blurry). Nver the less, you pulled out a million dollar picture! Bravo my friend and TFS Horia PS: i really don't mind the white sky here; i see some people do...i think that the picture is superbly exposed and the sky in the back is not overexposed...if you look closely, it's not burned and you can still see some details from the clouds. Plus, it contrasts well with the subject, making it stand out splendidly!
