Vaughn, I think they are both superb. I really like the compositions and the muted colours and subtle PP. I think I rate these as some of your best.

These are fine captures. The "eye" is certainly telling and the pose is striking. Excellent captures of dynamic moments. Impressive as always.

Nice shots Vaughn - love #2. Think #1 could be an interesting head shot even if you had to crop the right horn a bit to get the rump out!

So jealous you get to shoot these guys all the time. Keep 'em coming!
