I was struck by the lines and patterns formed by the giraffes standing in front of the tall weathered posts

Greetings from the Critique Club.

First impressions are that the Giraffe is lost in all those lines.

Technically this is ok. Composition is good and I'm a fan of shots where the subject is only a small part of the frame. I agree with some voters that the hue is quite unnatural. The lighting looks like it was in full sun - hence the monotone?

Artistically I like the small in frame concept. I'd like to have the Giraffe's head not in the hole as the Giraffe looks a little awkward like he is. Given the advanced editing rules I'd have cloned a couple of distractions from the fence that seem to be attention grabbers.

In summary a cool shot but an unusual toning.

Feel free to PM me if you have any queries.

I had to look at the comments on this one to see what people thought, and I agree. It's one of those shots that would be right at home in Nat'l Geo, or a fine art mag.

Awesome subject, although I'm not crazy about the reddish hue. More b/w might have served this image better.
