I like this one ...

If it would be my image I would probably try a bw conversion with a little less of the blurred grass in the foreground .. But that's only me and I do like it as it is!

Hi, Ron, this is a very nice capture. The out-of-focus plant in the foreground between the second and the third giraffes is angled in the same way as the necks of all three giraffes, which contributes to keep a coherent visual rhythm in the image.

Thank you Chris and Akira. Chris, this could benefit from a bit of trimming off the bottom. If I get around to printing it that will happen. As for the whole B&W vs color thing, that gives me no end of angst. I know full well there is resistance to digital B&W in the fine arts community, but I also know full well that Carolyn Guild has overcome that. Akira, I was a bit nervous about how viewers would take that OOF plant.

Don't know about the fine art community but would be interested to see the conversion :) Carolyn is in a league of her own anyway ...

I keep coming back to this image ... really well done!

Carolyn does it right at every stage of the process, capture, processing, printing and presentation. Glad you like the tall guys.
