This beautiful portrait really illustrates my first impressions when seeing wild Giraffe close up for the first time in Botswana. They are so handsome, regal and amazingly impressive! What a wonderful bull, and shot, Clement!

Love the low POV, but for me the blue is just too intense.

There's a real 3-d quality to this, the giraffe pops out from the background. I like the intense blue of the mountain, it sets off the color of the giraffe so well.

Beautiful image Clement. On first glance I thought that the "sky" was way over saturated but then I read the caption and discovered that is wasn't the sky but a distant mountain.
