Sounds like a wonderful experience! I think these guys are beautiful animals. You captured such nice detail of the texture of this one's skin. Letting a little less light into the lens would have brought out the tusk textures too, but the colors and details look good.

A beautiful picture of this magnificent Bull Elephant looking down on you from his stand on the rocks above you the light behind him giving him a halo of light & a pink glow through his right ear. I note both his tusks have broken tips. Beautiful composition, framing & beautiful natural back lighting taken with superb camera techniques & sharp focus.

A great perspective and a beautiful shot. I like the eye contact and the low shooting angle. The colors are great and it should be a contender in the contest. Best of luck.

Quite a nice animal shot posted here! Looks like a good entry into the competition! Your full and central composition grants us an imposing and striking view of your elephant. Exposure and sharpness are good. Well done and good luck!

This is a nice clear shot. The Elephant seems friendly but a fighter also. The top of both hith tusks is broken off. It looks as if he recently rolled in grass. There seem dry grass all over him. Thos details are as well captured as as the texture of color of his skin. I like the angle from below which allowes us to obseve the body features of the animal throughly. The photo has good dept. The proportions and perspective are exact.
