very nice, close shot! the tightness of the cropping really works well, capturing the textures, as does the symmetry. the trunk divides the photo in half and our eye is drawn to his eye.
you have a good eye, i look forward to seeing more of your work!

Really fantastic this picture.
Impressive how you get this close.
It's a pity the photo is so small but still like it anyway.

Excellent picture, great framing idea. A terrific way to open an account here, Kim. This calls for more!
(Note that you can upload a bigger size than this, it might have even more impact then.)
Cheers & welcome.

welcome on TE.
Nice post with a contrasted aspect of the elephant skin. I regret that the eye is in the center of your picture, you could crop a part on the left.
Take also the opportunity to enlarge your picture to 800 pixels
