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
