Let's be having some more images submitted. How about some scenes from the Australian outback for instance?

Canon EOS 10D, 24-105mm@24(38), FOV 80, 4x1 panorama, 1/90s, f9.5

I can't figure out how to reliably get images to look sharp on the forum here :wacko: My latest wildlife shots have been OK but this one is decidedly soft.

If you load the file directly

http://www.robgray.c...o-res/10756.jpg

it looks much sharper.

I thought these were supposed to be African images?

This is my favourite photo of Mkadebona, who was at the time (2010) only the third biggest tusker in Tembe elephant reserve, recently promoted to number 2 after the death of Induna. Sadly Mkadebona was found dead on 7 January 2013- from natural causes, impact injuries to his skull indicate probable cause was a fight with another elephant. He was always my favourite- not the biggest but his tusks so amazingly symmetrical. Normally fairly good natured, on this morning he was in a feisty mood and this photo was taken whilst reversing away at speed.

RIP Mkadebona. There aren't too many of these big tuskers left in the world and at only 45 we all thought he had many years to go.

Okay, so no one's uploading more images, therefore I'll give you 24 hours in which to like one of the above images so that I can begin work for the download. Thanks, Matt

Safaris and Ketchup are similar, sometimes you shake the bottle of Ketchup and nothing comes out, you shake and shake and shake and all of a sudden everything pops out.
So donīt stop shaking the bottle, thereīs a lot inside.
