  1. Some more here from a recent trip to the Delta & Central Kalahari.

    This image was taken in extremely low light, unfortunately (for photographers) in the evening is the time when most Ele's come down to drink. Moremi GR
    D3 & 500VR f/4@ISO3200 1/4sec hand held.
    Conversion to B&W. Increased the blacks for added contrast.

    Another beautiful set. Thanks for sharing these.
     
  3. Again, nice shots :biggrin: I really love how you handled the first image.
     
  4. Marc, great shots. I liked both of the elephant shots, great handling on the first and the light on the second one is just fantastic. I've got a real soft spot for African Wild dogs, so really liked the spirit in this one.
