Nice colors and composition, but the giraffe seems odd for some reason. Almost like a statue.

Great sky, and good idea for the silhouette, but, something about the giraffe looks a bit off. It looks too smooth, so I am guessing (and I apologize if I am wrong) that this was post processed a bit too much.

Is he real, is he not?

An interesting image. The sunset colors are good and I like the graduation of tones. The placement of the horizon is good too, as is the placement of the giraffe in the frame also. The tree does a good job of balancing the image. I keep looking at the legs because they look so weird. It looks like one leg with a hole in the middle. It's interesting how the mind fills in the blanks. It's nicely sharp, although a tad oversharpened with the white halo standing out more against the black silhouette.

Cool use of a silhouette. It almost looks like a statue.

Well done.
