Great Pic. Great lighting showing the wrinkles and bumps. Great composition, and hilarious subject. Definately the best so far in this category!!!

Well I'll be damned. I just finished complimenting one elephant's ass, and here's another one. All these years without one, and now it's two in five minutes. Now that I'm fast becoming an expert on the subject, I can say that this elephant's ass has slightly the better composition. Bravo! 8

I hope your not using a macro lens. Oh what we won't do for art..!
Oh, and nice job too. The 3D aspect is clearly seen.

I never realized how ugly an elephant's posterior really is. Ugly, but nevertheless an interesting and well captured texture.

Wow. Great idea. Hilarious too to use the rear end! Love the use of black and white to highlight the texture. Awesome image, perfect for this challenge. 10.

Yes, you have texture, but that's not the part of the pachyderm I want to look at.

What? No G-string on that butt-shot? Nicely done, actually. Really good exploration of texture.
