    The sun wasn't your best friend when you were out to photograph the elephants, now was it? So much harsh light to deal with, and often your highlights did get all blown.

    The sky and top of the back of the Indian elephant look beyond saving them, but the second (first of the African elephant pics) looks good. In the histogramme of that one I suspect you get no shadows at all and could therefore move the shadow slider up to at least 15 (guessimating here) to bring out some more contrasts. Then the second would easily be your best of the little series, technically, and also otherwise (like it is intersting how the elephant is leaning, seemingly listening in on something with his one ear stretched out).
