Brilliant, could not be better. This image has lovely light,great tones and a good eye contact. The textures of the skin, and the blades of grass go extremely well together. You couldnt have asked for a better sky either. Its nice to see such a good image, away from the norm. I like this alot, well composed and well taken. I hope this gets some kind of award as it deserves it.

You were ever so lucky to get such a dramatic sky when talking this shot! It works so well in this picture and you made a great choice by using mono! I couldn't agree more with Nick_W's comment as regards to the similarity to Nick Brandt, is he, as one may say, an idle of yours?

Everything in the image works well, with the excellent detail in the elephant and the grass in the foreground! A mesmerizing photo Josh!

Congratulations.
