This great image taken in the Pilanesberg Game Reserve, is as much art as it is photography. Everything about it cries out to be printed and hung on the wall as a large canvas. I love the clean, white background, the heavy contrasts, the choice of black and white, and the simplicity of the actual subject matter. The off-centre composition works perfectly, as does the somewhat mirrored image of the elephants themselves. The overexposed, diffused grasses in the foreground give context to the image. A very good photograph, and a wonderful post-shoot edit. Well done.
