Hate to be the wet rag but since it's not obvious to most, this is clearly not a real (single) photo- look at the lighting and shading. It's also the same background as the other manipulations with lions, giraffes, etc. Digit composites are fine by many, but they should at least be labelled as such and not portrayed as anything else. It's a nice composite though!

Behind The Lens

Location

Special photo series "Adventures on the Savannah", made in the savannas of South Africa in photographic safaris held in the city of Port Elizabeth. This photo is winner of several international awards, among them: - First place in the 44th National Wildlife Federation Photo Contest 2014 - Silver Medal winner in the 1st MIFA - Moscow International Fotograph Awards 2014 - Pentaprism Magazine "Into the Wild" photo contest - Honor mention in the IPA - International Photo Awards 2014 - Nominated in 8th Annual International Color Awards 2014 - PX3 Prix de la Photographie Paris 2015 - Honor mention - Finalist of the National Geographic Photo Contest 2014

Time

On the sunset, around 5:20 p.m.

Lighting

in the case of this photo just by the natural light of the sun.

Equipment

Canon EOS 5D mk II for this photo.

Inspiration

In Africa I exercised my contemplation capacity wildlife, nature and its immense magnitude. It is a unique and unmatched emotion on the Continent cradle of humanity and amazing wildlife. These wonderful pachyderms, ruthlessly hunted by man, the most beautiful are in pardes thus recorded by the cameras into beautiful images as consider to be this. One day we will have ensured the survival of these animals, and illegal hunting for ivory extraction, are banned outright.

Editing

I adjust the colors, saturation, contrasts and realce of brigths.

In my camera bag

Canon EOS 5D Mark III, Canon EOS 5D Mark III 5D SR, Hasselblad H4D 40, Canon EF Lenses: 100mm L USM, EF 70-200mm L II, 24-70mm L II, 16-35mm L II, SIGMA DSX 15 mm, Hasselblad lenses: HC 28 mm, HC 80 mm, HC 120mm, HG 50-110mm. LEE ND filters graduated, little stopper and big stopper. Tripod and Ball head Manfroto, Flash 600 EX-RT Canon, Lanter Led Flash Light

Feedback

It is always important to feel the moment, feel the place and put your feelings before you press the camera button. Integrates with its history, with its references and the people around you. Observe more and put poetry in his eyes. Good photos come with the maturation of the exercise and how much love you put into your picture.
