Firstly, thank you for bearing with my "trip" back to the Seventies Wink, and thanks for all the votes and comments, some of which had me smiling for hours!

Today we have another Sunset upload, this time giraffes which I hope you enjoy as much as the elephants. These were captured some time ago now at the Cotswold Wildlife Park, and whilst digging through my hard drive I came across them and thought they'd look OK with the sunset background.

Thanks for looking and have a good day!

Carol

Very striking image although a 'clever' judge would comment on the light on the front of the giraffe when the sun is behind it. I have that said about mine several times. They won't believe I used fill-in flash

An image with the 'wow' factor. However I'm not a 'clever judge' but Lonely_oryx's comment was the first thing that sprang to mind.

Yes I agree entirely with the comment about the light - I even tried to tone it down a bit as I also noticed that, but it washed out the detail in the giraffes, so I just bit the bullet and dulled it slightly then left it alone! And I used fill-in flash! WinkWinkWink

My problem with replacement backgrounds is that so often they mess with the truth of light, and the result looks 'wrong'. But the vote here is for the actual composition and placement of the giraffes, which is superb.
