.....or eats the way is more accurate. In the workshop I will add another photo of the father. Taken from inside the car, people are not allowed to leave their vehicles in the game parks, these things are so intimidating up close, I would not have left the car even if it was allowed. This is one of those scenes where nothing compares to being there. African game parks are not zoos, there is no other sound than the animals trampling the bushes, eating them and occasionally trumpeting (from both orifices).

The three smaller animals superimosing on each other - what a fantastic composition!
I would probably enhance this feature in this picture more. Crop everything out.. just leave the three elephanst. That would have an enormous effect I think.

Choreographic moment portrait in a good compo, Tan... They are like directed by Busby Berkley, in this case the elephant father, that´s why I dont agree with Parker, I prefer the way it is now. I like the colors too. Congratulations and take care.

Good family portrait, I can imagine that it was an intense encounter. Very well focused, the animals stand out nicely with respect to the background. Well composed.

even in my car I wouldn't feel safe, I think. Very sharp picture without trembling of fear...

Wow Tan, I am thinking about a trip to South Africa and somehoew hoping to try some wildlife shots..
You must have been really close the elephants in this one! I like your composition here and I can imagine the calmness in the photo.. Lovely colors.

Netlik ayari süper. Bence derinlik de cok iyi verilmis. Ozellikle sagdaki uc filden iyi anlasiliyor. Eline saglik.

Wow - amazing pose those elephants gave you here - and I'm glad to read you where inside a car - or tank ;-) I specially like the three animals in the background and the way they have lined up - Having a look at the father at the left can I see why nobody wanted to leave the car. Thanks Tan for one more fine photo from your great trips around the world.

excellent safari picture, the 3 elephants make the shot.
The way they are positioned is very good.
You were at the right place at the right time.
Good POV, well done.

Tan -- nice composition. The scene almost seems too good to be real - is it? The family in the background look like they're added in. Their outlines seem harsh, and as a group, they seem 'scrunched' especially with a short lens. Either way, it's a beautiful photograph.

hi tan, you shot these elephants using a 28-80? the elephants must be on a good mood. nice capture :)

Hi Tan, What a perfect line up! This is a very good capture of these four elephants in their own environment. Good colours and the elephants look particularly healthy here compared to some zoo animals. Great to see this on TE. Murray.
