Nice color and interesting, but for me, has a "wallpapery" feel to it. Would love to have seen more of the giraffe's "personality"!

A bit more of the giraffe and some context/background would have made this a considerably stronger challenge entry.

this would probably be more interesting to me if the focus was a little sharper. i also don't think the border does anything for the presentation.

Focuse and colors could wish better but idea is nice of showing texture.

Great abstract idea but I don't think the colours are rich enough to do it full justice.

Unusual perspective of a Giraffe, well done. The frame compliments it.

I being with a haiku:
Oh mighty tower
Melting with the burning grass
And bespotted paths

and now a faiku:
the shifting chroma
from the lens or the wobbles
begs for black and white

and now a paiku:
the dancing pattern
moves like sun-dappled water
hiding in shadow

Very cool! I like this a lot, a nice design with great composition! The only thing is its a tad bright on my monitor, and maybe a bit blurry. 8

Interesting texture but it says nothing about its environment to me.

Interesting take on the challenge.

Good luck.

Interesting perspective. The image seems flat. I'm trying to think of how you could have given it more oomph but I have a brain cramp right now. Stay tuned ... Jacko.

Nicely composed and producted shot. The border holds the shot together well, and good choice of just b&w for the border not colours. The black parts of the spots look a little pale. I think I'd increase the contrast or levels a ltitle. The shot looks a little soft - I think I'd try using a little (more) sharpening. With the texture as it is I'd imagine it would be hard to see any negative effect of the sharpening. Overall interesting idea and pretty well produced.
