[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The view of these great animals, walking slowly in the open fields seemed right out of a movie. They probably went to the river to spend the day and now were returning home.

Wonderful pic, Pedro! These are fantastic beasts and they do form very long-term friendships and family arrangements in their herds, banding together to fight predators and protect themselves. I notice the baby is in the middle, safe and secure. Well-captured subjects toward the lower third, sharp and clear.

Hello Mr Pedro, :D

What a great shot with 5 frieds or should I said family.... love the composition and POV you have here, it look great, very sharp too. Nice work, thanks for sharing,


Stunning scene, a family maybe walking together. The background is amazing it makes the area look very hot.

Hi Pedro,

Lovely composition!! Maybe they are a family as I see an elephant baby.
Great lighting and colours!! A sweet photo full of emotions! :)

Well done

Hi Pedro,
This kind of big animals we don't find in the Netherlands (except from ZOO's). Great capture my friend. Stunning those big buts! Like the soft colours in your photo. One thing an other crop might improve this shot even more, refer my WS. Nevertheless TFS my friend.

:) Later...

As promised...

Magnifique cette photo familiale d'éléphants...
Ca donne envie d'aller en Tanzanie !
Bravo !

Un extraordinario cuadro

Wonderful capture, they seem so relaxed. I love the baby. Lovely colours and a great composition



Hi Pedro,

Oh this is nice! My parents like to tell me the stories such as this... 'we were nearly killed by a crazed elephant'... 'we were nearly killed by baboons'... oh and just the memory of my mother getting mad at a nurse for not giving her snake anti-poison (since my brother and I were always playing in the feldt... barefoot!... we lived 45mins from the nearest hospital) ah only in Africa! ;)

This image is very sweet, I like that you decided they are friends... and I am sure they are. I love the way the dust hangs to the feet of the left elephant, it justifies they're hugeness. One thing (imo) if you cut the image a little more on the bottom, it would add more to the sense of them moving away. Great colours though... so Africa, dry and vast. Well done, I thoroughly like this photo!
