I love the composition and clarity of this shot, very nice work.

I have the uncanny feeling this is a statue of some sort, but it's certainly a really cool photo! My only complain is that the white-ballance appears a little off - there's nothing really white in the photograph. For example, the clouds in the background are sort of yellow. But I'm just being picky! :) Good shot!

Congrats, Mauri! Great finish! Love the slightly skewed statement this makes, but mostly just really like the picture. Very, very well composed, exposed and processed.

Damn, missed this one during voting - would have been a 10 from me. Great perspective, excellent colors and processing. Underrated for me.

Amazing, just amazing, and so dramatic.....

rather incredible shot. this treatment goes right to the edge of what i personally find acceptable, but, thankfully, pulls back and leaves me enjoying a very fine photograph. nice work!

Is that a fake elephant? It looks like one from a museum. If not, great shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2007 12:45:53 PM
Excellent capture. This is sure to do well. The tones and sharpness are spot-on. Congrats to you!

If this is real life - then I have underscored you (apologies now!). But I like it a lot anyway!

The sky looks fake, the mountains look fake, the elephant looks... HEY! Wait a minute!!! :-)

Wow that is awesome. 10

I don't find the orange color in the sky apealing in the least but the elephant looks sooooo awesome that I'm back to bump you up to 8. Very cool shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2007 12:25:02 PM
love the pose of the elephant and your perspective. The clouds seem as strange color - yellowish rather than white
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2007 06:24:25 AM
Nice

Wow ... just wow. Some of the best use of colors I've seen in a long time. Fantastic image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

9 - Well now, this is an asset to DPC. The 'dirty/dusty pp effect' suits this image well. Glad you retained the colors, especially of the sky, which complements the browns nicely. Like to have seen the upper left area even 'smoother', but fairly minor. Very good natural capture - glad that the background is there for context and 'verification'.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2007 11:04:40 AM
Very strong compositionally - bit of an odd color to the sky to me, though. Still a powerful capture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2007 06:54:41 PM
Remarkable! I'll be the first to place my order for a print of this if you offer it (crossing fingers)...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2007 06:00:20 PM
The light on the 'elephant' is good but for me the colour in the sky just doesn't look right (just my humble opinion)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2007 10:16:21 AM
Amazing shot! Good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful colorful shot, very nice

The sky color is a bit off for me, not sure what it is. Incredible subject though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

like a painting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2007 02:24:02 AM
Wow! Amazing image. One of the few so far today that really startled me and made me go yes! This is great! Like the editing. Can't even put my finger on what you did exactly (which is a good thing!) it's different! Good luck!

awesome processing love it 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 08:31:07 AM
fantastic, it's obvious that you selectively processed the background/sky and the elephant, you did great job nonetheless ... crop is very good but maybe i would like to see more of the surroundings around this magnificent animal

Was this taken at a Natural History Museum? Great expore and light. Color are nice. I think it would get me ore if I knew for sure if it were real or not... Still above average.
