    Love the elephant shot too :thumbup: but wondering why you cropped it like that (half head missing)?
    Also like the 1st gorilla photo ;)

    Not cropped. I was too close and didn't want to take the time to switch lens. Lol

    I agree, I actually love the way it is framed.

    Thanks for bringing this thread back up. I've actually had a lot of compliments on that elephant pic other than this forum. It seems to get the most attention aside from the gorilla looking miserable.

    I was thinking of getting some prints made. I have not printed any of my photos in years. Anxious to see how they look on paper.

    Btw that minolta 70/210 is by far the best legacy zoom I have used so far on my nex. Peaking is great on this one. Crystal clear optics. I actually prefer it over the vivitar by far. Only thing is that it's huge.
