Got lucky at the Zoo again.

I think this may do well but who can tell these days... 6.3?

Unfortunately the bottom half of Kruger got flooded 3 weeks ago, but true to SA grit, most of it is open again and repairs have already started. Uncle or not, give me an early shout and either go together (30 years experience in the Kruger) or I'll give you some tips :) I'm often there a few times a year. Remember it's southern hemisphere so work out the seasons. You need at least a full 7 days there, more if you can afford it. Camping is the most affordable way and doable. PM me if you like.

Well done on your top10. This image just goes to show what one can do at a zoo with a little bit of ingenuity and a lot of skill. It's certainly the right way to practice for when you come visit the Kruger.

I love the soft focus.



I may or may not be voting, so please do not equate my comment with any score.

Sublime. No more comment necessary. Where do we sign for the release? Just hope the slight haloing is not due to PP.

Wonderful detail and texture. I could absolutely imagine this on the front cover of National Geographic. My choice for the blue.

This one slows my heart. I love it. Perhaps a little more yellow saturation but that's all. 10.
