Elephants at Sunset

Elephants at Sunset

With the sun lowering, the lighting becomes special. Here we have a large group of elephants, with the light becoming golden. What a beautiful sight to behold!

What do I like about this photo? The lighting, obviously. Also, note that this photo has, in fact, three different planes - there's the elephant in front that's the obvious subject. Then, there are the elephants in the back, somewhat blurred out, but adding interest. Finally, there's the background, in a different color, and also blurred out. I also like the dynamic pose of the elephants in the photo.

What would I want to improve? I would have liked to be able to get lower, and go for a more dramatic photo. Eye contact with the elephant in front would have been magical.
