Personally I would like the second elephant in the frame. It is watching over the baby and the mother. But it would have been nice if the mothers was completely in the frame.

Aside from not backing up to get the heads completely in the frame, the biggest problem for me is the color balance. It has a sickly yellowish green that just does not look real.

It is so easy to use a neutral gray card to set a custom white balance - had you done so, and had you claimed that you did a Custom WB correctly, then we would be forced to accept the colors as genuine. However, lacking that, the critics are going to say that the color is wrong.

Hi,
Thanks all for u replies, If I went little more back the impact of milk feeding will be less, that’s what I judge.
Warm Regards,

The "cropped" head is fine with me. Helps to focus on the baby. Great photo!

The color correction went WAY too blue. I thought the warm light was nice. If anything, you could cool the shadows, but not the whole piece.
