A really cute photo. Nice crop, a richness of color in the giraffes, and a DOF that invites the eye to examine the giraffes. Good choice of title, too.

I think this is an awesome picture. I love the detail of the skin and the fur, and the framing and the juxtaposition of the tall giraffe and the shorter giraffe... You're one of my picks for the top three. I hope you do very well in this competition. :)

I love this picture! The contrast between the giraffe's and the background make them almost jump out at you! It is just a tadd too "mid-day bright", but it is a great shot anyway!!!

This is just the sweetest wildlife photograph I have ever seen! I can actually see the Mother Giraffe's lips moving. "When you are older you can cross the river alone." Real Disney like. Love the muted colors, great dof. Nothing distracts from the subjects, and their conversation. Great title!

Nice shot and cute title. I like the composition alot with the dof you used, the giraffes standout but you get a good sense of their habitat.

Amazing. Definitely my favorite so far. Gorgeous. Lighting, Clarity, Emotion, DOF....not much more to say.
