Capturing the grandeur of large animals in the wild can be quite a challenging task. To get a successful photo, consider the background and terrain, try to keep a safe distance from the animal, and get down on its level for more interesting shots. When looking for a composition before taking any photos, observe the direction of light and shadows carefully to ensure you've positioned your subject in such a way that it stands out from the crowd. Thank you to all the photographers that submitted their favorite photos of large animals in this photo contest with chances to win The North Face Waterproof Bag and more prizes in the process.
