Hi Firsty! Nice job. This is an amazing image well worth the high placing it recieved. It was also very nice to "trash talk" with you in the forum. :)

Beautiful color, detail, focus and cropping, just to name a few.

This is one terrific capture. High rating from me. Sad though, I think it would get a higher score from the DPC crew if it had a bit more post. I like it the way it is though.

great shot. love the slant of the ground and the way you managed to catch them both as they turned to look.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/03/2006 07:53:09 AM
Haha, I love the pose! The opposing slopes of the ground and the tree-tops combined with the positions of the larger and smaller beasts make an extremely interesting composition. This is truly a postcard shot, congrats!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/03/2006 06:53:34 AM
This is a great shot with them both looking at you like that. Definately a classic

Beautiful capture...they were posing for you, it seems! Nice color and contrast. On the humorous side, my first thought for a caption was "Do these horns make my butt look too big?" ;)

Oh wow, this is lovely. Great postures on those animals. What a capture.
