An attempt to remove the waterdrops from my front page

[Aug. 10th, 2012 02:57:51 PM]

Colours were as gold as it appears

I have 300 more I can show you Hehe. Seriously, if you ever get an opportunity to come to Africa, Hwange in Zimbabwe is the best for elephants. The light is fantastic, and one may still manoeuvre around a dam to have the sun at your back.

Awesome image and congrats on the ribbon.

I am still not sure about the black border as it seems to take away from the golden moment, but I understand why you considered using it here with the limitations on picture width!

WD on the ribbon Herman! Just awesome Africa. Hwange of all places! You're right about African light. All that red soil dust in the air gives those stunning golds and yellows. It is different here.

Hwange selfs beter as Chobe! Baie geluk. Dit is waarvoor jy 'n kamera het. Moenie ophou nie. So jammer ek het nie gestem die afgelope weke nie, deadlines wag egter vir niemand nie. Baie geluk, dis 'n wonderlike foto en welverdiende lintjie.

I feel totally ashamed that your ribbon is yellow and mine is blue... if it were me giving out the ribbons... this one would have been the blue! It is one of my favorites of all my favorites!

Lovely family capture. I love Mum's trunk nudge - come along get into the bath!

A truly stunning capture. Sad that the sunlight was so harsh, but I can fully appreciate the fact that one takes images such as this when the opportunity presents itself. I am officially envious.

Great light and great find; nicely done. One of my top picks.

my son wants me to give you a 10, b/c he loves elephants, but what spoils this is the ugly black frame, still I've been guilty of that as well, but this would of looked better without it, plus you've cropped the mother to the right off.

Still cute moment! 7

great non-domestic shot. Really like the tones in this one very national geographicesque.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Lighting is a little to harsh, and I wish the shutter was a bit faster... Still my choice for 8th place though. Nicely captured.
