Friends, Thanks for the many kind comments. Africa is so full of amazing life.

Sorry for my slowness in responding, our family is in the midst of moving to Kenya and life has been somewhat hectic.

Venser - no sweat on the 1. Appreciate you letting me know. Mistakes happen, at least I seem to make them all the time :)

Levyj413 thanks for answering on my behalf :) - when I saw your reply I thought - "crap I should have done that earlier" but have been slow when I should have made it a priority.

Love the DPC community!

I thought I was bumping this up at the last minute from a 9 to a 10, instead I'm your 1 vote. In every free study I always choose one photo to be the best of the lot, and this was it, at least in theory. Turns out I placed you at the bottom with the chafe.


I'll let you off the hook. If your 1 had instead been a 10, it would've raised the score to 7.2149, still in 3rd place.

With their ears out, they look like they're about to charge, scary.
Fantastic shot, congrats on the yellow.

Wonderful shot. They look like they are so close!

The big heavy animals topped with the light puffy clouds... oh what a wonderful scene.

Amazing

Love the perspective, the crispness of the grass, the blue of the sky, and oh, those magnificent, stately elephants. Wonderful :-)))

This has to be my favourite image of the challenge. Typical African scene, lumbering elephants facing you, blue winter sky with cotton wool, brown baked earth and grass and the beautiful Baobabs in the BG. Typical AGFA 100 Slide film processing of the 80's and super exposure. VWD. Hope you get in the top10 with this if not a ribbon. Fave'd. 10.
