We had sun-downers with a friend of mine on the banks of the Crocodile river. Earlier the evening there was a heard of elephants browsing on the apposite shore of the river where we were. They eventually disappeared behind the trees. Just as the sun started to set, one of the elephants returned and crossed the river. She walked towards us until there was only the security fence between us and elephant. The particular lady-elephant would often cross the river for a chat. I posted the original to the critique-forum and with their advice I corrected and posted it to this wider forum. I will still enjoy criticism and you may even dare to change the photo.

Really beautiful shot Aart
I like everything about this... the light, color, composition. Classic example of wildlife and their environment. It would be nice to see more detail in the elephant which would be tough considering it's back lit from your position. But I think the Upoint technologies available today like Viveza or Capture NX might make it possible.
Also like the tremendous depth you get here with the plants in the foreground and those beautiful mountains in the back.
