Post-Processing: Converted from raw; sharpened, cropped and resized in CS4       Extra Info: Unfortunately this song came into my head while visiting the zoo. Maybe it will go away soon.

"I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
No crocodiles, no rhinoceroses
I only like hippopotamuses
And hippopotamuses like me too"

    Luckily, I don't know that song or it might have got stuck in my head too! Hope it leaves yours soon :)

After a recent trip to the zoo, I appreciate how difficult it is to get good pics of the animals. They don't keep still, you can't do anything about the backgrounds, the light comes from the wrong direction... the list goes on and on. I think you did a great job with this shot.

    Nice photo, nice link to the song. Great composition too. I hope you weren't thinking of the version by Alvin and the Chipmunks - that song will never leave your head:-)

    It doesn't know whether to be sad or glad not to be picked for Christmas... ;-)

    A bit of a snapshot like "day at the zoo" kind of shot but it fits in well with the song title.

    No as I looked at this I immediately though of adding a vignette. This would darken those corners and make us concentrate on the wonderful detail on the face. Don't know the song but how can I doubt the match?

    I don't know the song but it obviously fits. The rhino is nicely captured. The background is the ruin of this great image. It needs to be darkened, blurred and toned down to no colour to really give feel to this magnificent animal portrait; you've got the lighting on the head and the angle and the eye perfect here. This could be a wonderfully rich and evocative tone on tone display of shades of grey, brown, blue, and black.
