Great texture.

Excellent image! So much texture. The DOF works very well too. I'm assuming it's a statue? I didn't even think of that at first because of the great composition and all the superb technicals. Great job!

Love the texture in this. And good DOF, too.

Pretty cool shot, almost looks like a cement statue.

not bad for a close-up of a figurine. you almost fooled me - respect for that and one point added.
though this DNMC, I guess you will at least have a mediocre score - most voters unfortunately don't look close enough.

I love the tones and textures here. The DOF and distortion give it an added character that I like. Bumping after a closer look.

This is a nice shot of a REAL LIFE elephant. The focus is so sharp I can almost see the elephant breathing. You know what they say about elephants... They never forget! This elephant looks very intelligent. I might say bright even. Almost like a candle...

Nice focus on the eye
10/11/2007 02:16:36 PM
Could this be a toy-elephant?
The wrinkles on his nose are very deep, his eye is too large and his ear looks as if it was sticked to the head....
You almost fooled me

I've seen this shot quite a bit and I like that you didn't desaturate it. Although I wish the eye was in a more interesting place not dead center
10/11/2007 03:28:07 AM
Prefer put the eyes more left if could or make in vertical format..

I love this shot. The wrinkles in the trunk are so clear and add depth to the picture. Great composition.

looks like a toy

The tight cropping gives an impression of the size of the beast.
