    Outstanding use of tone-on-tone, light-on-light, texture-on-texture. You have thoroughly succedded in firmly embedding these creatures in their habitats, which is what wildlife preservationists all work so hard to achieve. You certainly have done your part for these wonderful creatures.

  6. These are some the animals I watching for environmental reasons, and have seen hundreds of photos.These photos are excellent. The compositions are well done. The reflections in the water, move the eye where there should be dead space; the cropping of the elephant, fluxuating the silloute against the landscape, cropping the photo in the middle where at a glance would not be caught-! The last image maybe the most difficult, here again the edges are made clearer upon viewing; the Panda’s eyes glaces away and diminishes the”cutest” factor and in turn the panda, is an individual, the photo becomes a portrait.

      Wow! Thank you, Heather! The last image was indeed difficult, because I took it behind glass. Once I reviewed my shots, I found that there was something a bit in the way of the panda… that was a real bummer. So I cropped it out the of the photo, but I do wish I could have gotten more of his ear in the shot. Maybe next time I’m at the zoo, I’ll get a better picture! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
