Taken in Lake Manyara Tanzania, wonderful place lodes of wildlife and beautiful nature. Turned it black and white, sharpened the contrast and croped a bit of the right edge. Very minimal post-pro. And yes there are a lot of zebras there just if you know where to look :)

Pretty scene. Love the zebras barely visible in the background. Great textures.

They have a very distinctive shape those trees - instantly says Africa, probably helped by the zebra ;)

Little bit too centre in my opinion

the filled frame approach to emphasize the canopy of these noble trees, the zebra in the brush below, the subtle details in the high sky - it all works so nicely together

I wonder how many have missed the zebra (?) in the background. Great location shot.

Gorgeous tree. Border's seems too heavy for such a delicate shot.

7 - Nice. The zebra really makes this. Minor, but looks like might be another one directly behind the tree perhaps cloning that out.. but again, minor. Only other thing that I think might give this even more of an edge is a little more depth via contrast/sharpening/pp.. but your call, of course.
