About the Image(s)

I was at Lincoln Park Zoo last week and captured this giraffe stretching out his neck. Taken with my Nikon D500 and Tamron 150 to 600 lens.

Great pose and excellent composition, sharpness and depth of field. Only suggestion here is to remove the distractions in the background. Powerful and lovable image!   Posted: 11/16/2021 16:29:50

Very nice image. I like the background as it enhances the pose.   Posted: 11/16/2021 20:26:23

An unusual capture, Howard. Good detail. Sharp from the whiskers to the ear hairs. A bit of a Rorschach: if I imagine the eye looking toward the left, I see a creature with a tall head. The ear becomes a mouth, and the horn, if that's what it is, is the nose.   Posted: 11/20/2021 20:16:21

The giraffe is very detail and sharp. The background is a little bit distractions. You may try darkening the background a bit more. Great capture.   Posted: 11/23/2021 21:16:08

Hello, I'm just visiting from group 30. This is a unique image and well done. Might I suggest adding a tiny bit of canvas on the right and on the top? Very easy to do in PS especially since it has a solid background on those sides.
