    Impressive.
    And the zebra group pic sure makes obvious that these are animals in the wild. The zoo will still need to be built that could keep such a huge herd of zebras.

    I really like that zebra crossing photo! :D

    And the close-up of the elephant caked in mud. Super focus on the eye-lashes (and mud).

    Very cool! I envy your experience in Africa. Its definitely on my list.

    I like the heard shot the best. That crooked skyline is hard to miss though.... :sexywink:

    These are great! A bit of constructive criticism:

    1 - it looks unfortunately like you've focussed just in front of the monkey, would be a nice shot otherwise.

    2 - as has been pointed out, the horizon needs fixing. If I were you, I'd just clone over the blue to avoid loss of resolution. It's a shame that the zebra on the left has his head chopped off. A tighter crop might make this feel less unnatrual.

    3 - Lovely capture, very bold pattern. Horizon might be tilting ever so lightly to the right and I would up the contrast a tad.

    4 - Very nice composition, maybe could have done with a slightly shorter exposure?

    6 - Nice, try upping the contrast and consider B&W? The bottom right and top right distracting corners need cropping out/cloning over as well.
