Tell us what you think of the photograph Essence of elephants. Not seen it yet? Visit the Wildlife Photographer of the Year website.
Great Picture, with this Nikon camera combination, the African Elephant in front could overrun the photographer and his equipment, the adrealine should be high at this very moment! Congratulations !
Having had the privilege of being guided by Greg I appreciate his dedication and the work he puts into taking his photos and the excellent results he achieves. A very deserving winner.
This was not the best entry there were others far more worthy of winning
Having spent a very enjoyable couple of hours viewing some wonderful photographs this one is NOT I would have expected as being the best. There were many more attention grabbing pictures with vastly more information and interest in them. My first impression of this picture was a very blurred image with little attention-grabbing aspects to it.
Not worthy of winning, many more better images. i would have hated to come 2nd place to that
This is photographic art at its best. The ghostlike movements of the baby elephant in the foreground and the rest of the herd drinking is just sublime. The forethought that went into creating this masterpiece is incredible. He clearly is a deserved winner: http://www.gregdutoit.com/index.php?page=from_field
I don't understand the choice to the jury this year. This is not really a great shot. it seems that we have blue halo around the elephant. OK the blur effect is there for movement but what else ? it's a very poor shot. https://www.facebook.com/DenisAJeanneret
Note: I was not agree to try the contest this year.
The picture is really good I can see why he won!!!
Greg du toit is amazing I have never seen a professional wild fotographer like him so. Keep it up GREIG
Poor composition. When I first saw this I thought there must be better. Maybe I should enter one of mine after all.
My first impression was -gosh this is a first. Well done
amo a los Elefantes, son tan hermosos y nobles, me encanta esa fotografÃa.
Excelentes colores en una muy buena toma, Felicidades Amigo!!!
