Hi, have just found this forum and joined straight away. Looks very helpful. Just back from safari in and caught this magnificent creature on the banks of the Zambezi. Hope to post some more.

Hello and welcome to the forum, I do like #2 for a start!, its the almost serene expression on the animals face that makes the picture.

I agree with Denis, the second shot works best - I love the animal's expression.

Please be sure to drop in at the Welcome Centre to say hello, we're a bunch of right nosey sods and we'd love to know a bit about you.

It's my guess your name will be shortened to Mac with little delay - shout out if that's a problem.

Hi'ya, number two for me too, but nice to see both. 

Do as Korky suggested and say hello in the Welcome Centre and tell us a little bit more about yourself.

Always nice to see animals in their natural environment, I wonder if the processing could be improved to make the animals a little less dark...???

Hi, thanks Ryewolf for the comment on the light. I have lightened it slightly as it was a late afternoon game drive.  I generally don’t like to edit too much . I feel the work should mainly be done with the camera and portray the image as it was naturally. Having said that being lighter would possibly make it sharper but I like the moodiness of it.

Obviously I understand that shooting in the wild you have no control over were or when animals might appear....

I do like the Ostrich shot....

Love that ostrich shot Mac ... looks very haughty from that viewpoint .....  and it looks a well timed shot to catch the skimmer at the moment he touched the water . Lucky you going on Safari...
