Hi Christian,

Fantastic capture.Excellent capture with good light and composition.

Hello Christian,

I'm sure everyone's hearts will just melt when they see this! What a charming family scene! You waited until just the right moment to get maximum impact!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Oh my... Christian. This takes today's prize!! I love the way daddy's and baby's heads are aligned. That is not a very long lens. How close were you? It is a wonderful photo and beautifully executed.

Bonjour Christian,
Bravo pour cette excellente image. La scène est très touchante, la composition de l'image excellente et les couleurs très fines. Une image dont on se souviendra.
Bon après-midi

Hi Christian

Awwww, very cute shot. I'm a sucker for giraffe shot. I have a 2m shot in my lounge room. This is an award winning shot in my opinion. You should enter it in a photographic magazine contest, I'm sure it would win. Great stuff.


Hello Christian,

What a fantastic picture! Great moment. Great composition. Great photo.
I like it!

Hallo Christian
I have been much occupied lately and although I saw this posting I did not have the time to critique it at that time. Now I have returned to compliment you on such beautiful and peaceful scenery. Looking at this image really has a calming effect on ones whole being. Is nature not absolutely wonderful? The affection shown between the adult and the youngster is really touching and warm. A very inviting and attention grabbing scene. The dam or lake in the background filled with water birds adds a special touch to this already beautiful image. The link you included in your note tells a story that we don’t always like to see but is the harsh reality of life out in the wild. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Hi Christian

Super cool family shot with the affectionate moment between dad and junior while mom looks on all too lovingly. Dad can be identified by the darker colouration and the bald patches on his horns and mom of course have horns that looks like a paint brush with hair growing over the top and being somewhat lighter in colour. An excellent composition with lovely colours and great details from the extended DOF.

Well done and TFS.

Hello Christian,
A very fine Giraffe family meeting caught at an excellent moment.
The composition and technical standard are excellent and as I have absolutely no negative remark on this image I feel the least I can do is give you the full credit for this superb capture.
Though a note on the circumstances of this capture and a little about the giraffe species would be useful to many of us on TN.
Thanks and kind regards,
