APPRENTICE

Fading fast but I'll leave my mark

We all know that a zebra's stripes are like fingerprints, each one unique. However, this species is also now on the verge of extinction according to the IUCN red list. This is due to hunting and loss of habitat space. My photo shows a zebra trotting away, but the stripes and hooves are clearly visible to show that where a species once walked, even though erased, it will leave it's mark in the footprints of time.

    Also, this image lacks contrast and you have to increase the blacks and whites to pop it.

    Maybe email it to me first bruna@dpc.co.za - We dont want to confuse the viewers. If that image is stronger than this one,I will ask you to post that one and feature the strongest one for you..

    Thank you bruna. You are welcome to feature the image. I agree, we can not control nature. I do have a similar shot of the zebra trotting past the camera if you would like me to post it for you to see which one is best. Blessings Nix

    I really like the description… “My photo shows a zebra trotting away, but the stripes and hooves are clearly visible to show that where a species once walked, even though erased, it will leave it's mark in the footprints of time”. So true, and you are telling us the story through your lens. The concept works well for me and yes, it is a pitty the Zebra is running away instead of past your lens, but we cannot control nature, we work with what we are so privileged to capture in camera. I would love to Feature your image.
