And last one, this was when they first came right up to us.

Again, shot with the 24-70f/2.8 II at 24mm
If you have LR5 you could try to "straighten" the slant of the elephants on either end. I know it works with verticals and horizontals for buildings.

Great pics and I am sure it was a great experience. The only charge I have experienced is a stampede of Gaur (Indian bison) in a forest reserve called Tadoba in Central India. We stood behind trees and waited for the herd to pass. When they did, we thanked the stars we were still alive and headed straight to the forest rest house :)

Seeing things that weigh about 800 kg (1750 lb) whizz by around 5 feet from you is unnerving.

Thanks RPT, I do, and I'll have a look to see if it Helps, appreciate that.

And your right, that sort of thing can be unnerving, it's always good though when they actually whiz past you, and not through you.

Interesting how neither Grey or the guy / guyess in the rumoured 100-400 II photo are using hoods. Have hoods gone out of fashion ?

Greg was using the new (at the time), Nikon 80-400 which he tends never to use the Hood on, he also uses the Nikon 200-400 but keeps the Hood on.

I've sort of followed suit as it seems to work, the Canon 70-200 I don't use the Hood (it's so small in any case), the 200-400 I do but that's mostly because it's the new Baby so gets extra care and attention.

If I have the Sun forward of the front element I'll generally put the Hood on, otherwise I tend to leave them off, at this point I've had very little issue with flare on any of my Canon Lenses.

Just to add to the discussion on hoods....Personally, i hardly ever use them.

When I was young and poor, I saved up for a FD 70-200 f2.8L. Proudest photographer in town. Second week I had it I cracked the front lens element, so I turned risk awerse and always use the hood.

Another Cheetah Shot, late afternoon Light, just finished eating a Kill, Thompson's Gazelle, ate the thing to almost nothing in about 30 Minutes, Cheetahs eat fast, always in mind that Leopards, Hyenas and Lions will easily push them off a Kill.

In certain lighting conditions, hoods don't just protect against flare, they'll also improve contrast. When the light source is directly in front or behind or if it is even lighting, they probably wouldn't have much effect, but with side lighting where you may have incident light striking the lens element, they could be the important extra lift to an image.
