It makes me wonder if that gentle giant was standing there waiting for something, if he/she was walking away or munching some grass...and I like the vastness of the surrounding

Maybe I like your picture that much because it remembers me of one my own pics, here is a link if you are interested:
gentle soul
It is accompanied with a childrens poem, this is a rough translation (at least I tried):


Highly sensitive

The elephant is big and tall
But gentle is his nature
His heart is made of creamy quark
His soul is tender like a violet

Once this big, tall elephant
It wasn’t on purpose , I swear!
Stepped on the circus director’s hand
They both wept bitter tears


That's a lovely comment, and a sweet/sad picture & poem that you linked as 'gentle soul'. I despair when I see elephants in any place other than the wild; I don't think there's anything that makes me feel more bereft than that. I think it's very good that you found a meaningful way to picture a captive elephant; an Indian elephant I think? The elephant is entombed in concrete. It feels everything, its captors feel nothing. You moved that line a little bit. Thank you.

My only 9 of the challenge. I wish I could say I'm shocked to see it this far down, but I'm not.

I could stare at this one all day, the rising dark and the piercing bright. Top mark from me.
