Dust is big mood enhancer here and love the transition from dust to water!

The high contrast in the front animals really sets off the dust at the back. The splashes look good also.

Really nice, has a watercolor painting feel to it.

Certainly a classic scene, Jerry. It almost defines how an African photographic safari should be. I really love the action created by the stirred up dust in this. Thanks for sharing!


This just screams Africa. I love the contrast between the dustiness in the back and the very clear shots of the animals in the front. Excellent!
