I don't expect this one to do extremely well as I know there is going to be some really outstanding photo's. However, for me, this would have to be one of the best photo's I took in 2007, and I just love Elephants. So for that reason I am happy with how this came out. I would guess this will score somewhere around a 5.3.

Great job framing this shot (or cropping) and excellent focus. Colors look natural, too, which is a pleasant surprise.

So many elephant shots are of African elephants so when you see an asian elephant you wonder what happened to their ear. I love elephants and must have 100s of images on disc, Many form this angle and croping. I find that the focus is a little soft and the eye looks off and is a little distracting for me. Good Luck. 4.
