Wow, you actually came close enough to take a photo of these? I am impressed. Where was this?

Anyway. It's a pity that you did not stand right in the middle of the road, puttin the animals in front of a straight-forward background, which would make them stand out more. Also, if you would have moved backwards just a little bit, you could have cropped the picture to a square, which in my opinion would've looked really good here.

The colors are okay, nothing too special. The sky looks a little bit too washed-out, maybe you should have sharpened and darkened it in post-processing. The shadows on the animals are awesome though!

I don't know whether it's just a coincidence or you actually waited for that to happen, but that little elephant runnig after the bigger two (possibly his family! whoo!) is kinda cute.

To sum this up: Nice setup, nice capture, but I wish the angle and the colors would be slightly different. A very well-executed snaphsot though (if you can call a snapshot "well-executed")!
What do you think?

Prints of my artwork will be used to raise awareness about endangered animals (elephants in this case), and for fund raising for the World Wildlife Fund(WWF) :)
