Inherently Powerful, Unexpectedly Sweet

January 24th, 2012

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is located in Nairobi, Kenya. This place is currently the home of Soilo, a female rhino that was orphaned due to poaching. This amazing creature shows how much she likes visitors by leaning against the wooden poles of her cage to let kids pat her on the sides. She is only locked for one hour a day for tourist visits.

Canon EOS 50D, Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM.

Location: 1°22'38.64"S, 36°46'21.71"E

Incredible image, I almost mistook it for a wood carving. What an unusual creature they are, it's beautiful yet I am a little disturbed by its appearance at the same time. I love the profile and focus.

Is the background dark or has it been edited? I assume it's been blacked out and while I love the way it makes the subject jump out at you I can't help but think it looks a little too unnatural.

just wow.. brilliant sharpness, great contrast and clarity. the black background isn't that big of a deal for me actually. it lets the subject pop even more. i like it a lot.

I don't mind the black background either, as the subject light and contrast has been adjusted to work with it. It is this kind of image that works really well on a desktop because our screens are backlit! To have the same effect on paper, you'd need to light it quite well!

I do find though that at 2560x1440, the sharpness isn't that great, probably because the rhino somehow moved, or because of camera shake. But it's not strong enough to take away the originality of the image. Maybe a higher ISO setting would have helped!
Thanks for sharing!

This photo brings back fond memories. I visited the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi almost exactly a year and saw that very rhinoÂ…as well as some very charming young elephants. What an experience!

Grat shot overall, though the dark background and lighting makes the shot look a bit like something in a museum. A soft focus background providing a glimpse a the rhino's environment.
