What a wonderful moment! I love zebra hugs!

This one definitely works for me. A Riot of Lines is what I immediately thought. You can just keep following them around the photo and it's fun to explore.

A beguiling pair. The dominance display of the zebras is gently echoed by the branches in the foreground. The toning gives the image a timeless feel, and maybe the persistence of dominance too. The inter-continuity of the striping is also fascinating and thought provoking. The image seems lavish. I've enjoyed moving the screen up and down to make the stripes shimmer.

The black stripes of course.

Or is it the white ones?

Before we know it, we also use our big headedness to bore(sic) our neighbours into the ground.

What a fabulous shot and tribute to Ubique. It's perfect!

Very "Ubique" tones and scene. I never realized zebras had beards, lol. Thank you for the introduction.

That may be what they were doing - one exerting dominance - but it looks more like they're comforting each other.

riveting. maybe I will think of a comment later.

This doesn't look like dominance to me. Then again, I don't know much about zebras. But to me it looks more like small talk.

Oh, here's a twist (for me). I'm surrounded by zebras every day, but mine are all Burchell's or plains zebras. These are something else; I think they're Grevy's zebras. Anyway, stripey buggers that I once heard a child call "pyjama horses", which I think would be a good official name.

I like your processing because it makes the picture seem like an illustration from a 19th century travel book (and I love reading those!) Given the vegetation visible this must surely be in a zoo, but if so you've done a good job making it look natural.

Thank you.

I like the subject nod and the toning is perfect.

If only brighter and more contrast!

Certainly Ubique-ish from his safari collection. Nice capture.
