I don't think this is over edited...any less editing and people would be complaining that its too normal and that you should up the contrast or something I think

Nicely captured & processed - a little too hot on the tusks, but I like the texture throughout...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/10/2007 09:59:13 PM
Nice PP.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/10/2007 11:33:53 AM
My favorite of the challenge for the composition and the subject matter. Burning on the tusk on the elephant on the right of the photo seems quite apparent but the rest of the processing is fine.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/09/2007 10:19:08 PM
Very nice, great detail, I bet this is near the top!

Gorgeous composition and lighting. Love the details on their tusks.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/07/2007 07:26:03 PM
Just such a beautiful shot. Fantastic emotion and I love the texture of the skin that I can just feel by looking at it. Very well done. One nit - I don't much care for the border - I think adding no border would possibly work better here IMHO. An amazing shot. Back to bump you up to 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/07/2007 06:23:05 PM
very sharp and well composed. Really like the filled frame crop as well, well done!

06/05/2007 02:18:46 PM
I always find elephants to be a hard subject to photograph. I can never seem to really justify the textures of their skin nor their gentle nature. You have done both with this wonderful photo. They look like they are sharing a private moment of rememberance between them.

06/05/2007 09:21:09 AM
Lovely photo & I really like the crop. Nice frame for this one..should do very well! Good luck.
