[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Came around the corner in the road while visiting the game reserve when we saw this Giraffe walking.
They can weigh up to 1000kg and can live 28 years. Snorts and grunts when alarmed and bellows when hungry. Eat leaves especially from the thorn trees.

Bom dia Jannie,
Good catch this strange animal, reasonable focus, good light and composition.
Good perspective and DOF.

Must be wonderful to live somewhere where you can turn a corner and see such a beautiful animal. Nice capture.

Hello Jan,
The focus and exposure control are spot-on. So is the disposition of the beautiful animal. Perhaps portrait format would have done even more justice to the image but very good as is. Best wishes.

Hi Jan,
Another well composed image. The timing was good capturing the curiousness of the giraffe as it turns its head ever so slightly to peer at you.I love the surroundings as well. I agree with Neels regarding the format however an interesting image.

Great shot, the colours are fantastic. I would extend with Photoshop a bit of the sky above to give more hight and breadth to the whole composition

Hi Jannie,
Nice shot.
