You know, I've always liked this shot a lot. I wonder what else we could do with it now that we know how to use Photoshop? :)

an exciting perfection of interacting forms. One trunk up, one trunk down. How did you arrange this? ;) 9

6 - Nice capture and composition. Shame about the tusks. The background 'line' makes this seem like it needs a nudge rotate up on the right, in my opinion, for balance.edit:changed 'left' to 'right'

A good moment to get captured on your camera. The clash is impressive and the colour is good.

tough scene to expose for in what I assume is probably mid-day light...very nice detail here.

Primitive. Nice colours in the pachyderms.

I am not sure if I like this, or not, so I guess you got the title right.....
It just has some tension in it, and I am not comfortable about that.....
