Lonely Gemsbok

By chrispd101
A shot taken in Etosha, Namibia, last December. This was taken on the edge of the pan, with grey skies, just before a storm.

I played around with the comp a bit, and decided, unusually for me, that I really prefered the central positioning of the subject...sort of half way between nothing and nothing...

Thanks for looking and comments appreciated.

Quite agree with central positioning and you can also see the surrounding habitat rather than a full frame of the subject.

He does look quite lonely. I agree about the positioning as well - it looks great. Grin

I do agree with you. This is a marvelous photograph. I know Etosha well, lived in Swakopmund for a couple years

I think I would have positioned it a little more to the left, but it's your picture and majority opinion seems to be with you.
