Hi David...
Excellent view...
Nice composition and the sharpness in the image...
Have a nice weekend...

A wonderful shot here David.
Even though the tree is central in the frame,
the concentration and distribution of zebras is stronger on the left, and well placed underneath the tree.
I like the branch that is hanging down as well.
Beautiful capture

Hello David,
Excelent photo with a great depht and focus, and a fantastic detail with a great light and fantastic colours. Amazing the sharpness of trees and zebras.
Regards, mb

Hi David,
Very beautiful scenery. Those trees are amazing! Marvellous sky and such wonderful animals.
Of course, needless to mention, fabulous sharpness.

Hi David,
The huge tree gives a great scale to the entire photo. I would never guess that these trees are so high. Although some may say that the tree is positioned too centeral, I think it works because of the zebras and the repetition of the other trees throughout the landscape. The depth by those trees and the clouds is huge and makes me want to explore each distant detail.
