    Okay, as I mentioned yesterday in the Wildlife thread, our office building is undergoing rennovations and my boss is moving into a room that we've nicknamed "the Cave", as its just four walls, no windows (not even in its door).

    To brighten things up for him, I've arranged to use our "humungo" printer at work to create a virutal window for him, ie, print out some nice image.

    Here's the candidates. Vote for 2. Comments are welcome:

    Giraffe (neck):

    There's enough wall space for probably 2 or 3 prints, so there's the additional challenge of getting sets to compliment each other.

    Giraffe (Solo,) the cactus and maybe a shot out to the parking lot so he can check on his car? :)

    How big are you talking here? And will it be framed?

    I liked the zebra and giraffe heard. The closeups would weird me out - something in the room is looking at me.....

    I voted the Zebra. Just seems to be the best "on the wall" shot of the group.

    I voted for the Zibra and the Giraffe herd (I wish though if there were more than 4 giraffes in the herd pic, 50 or 100 would be cool :D :eek: ).

    The Hornbill and the solo giraffe, in that they are both in the 'portrait' mode and more akin to a window with the proviso that the giraffe sky be more like the hornbill's sky hue.

    Zebra and Hornbill for me.

    I like the Giraffe herd as well. I didn't like the other shots for large print as much, maybe the solo elephant, although it's definitely not a part of the best two.

    There is not zebra herd. :confused:


    As for me, I voted for the hornbill and solo elephant.

    I'd have to go with elephant and giraffe herds. The rest are a little too bright for a small enclosed space in my opinion.

    hornbill and giraffe solo. they were sharpest, had the best color, and had the most vivid landscapes. then again, your boss may not be as much of a photo geek as I am...

    great shots, all of them. I went with zebra and giraffe solo. Would have gone with the giraffe herd if only the sky wasn't cloudy...

    Elephant solo or herd: as big as the wall itself! That would be a landscape!

    Thanks for the feedback

    Thanks for the feedback ... and keep it coming. I also would have liked the 'giraffe herd' sky to have been more blue, but it was a bit overcast on that day (the things you don't notice on the first few days of a trip, etc). Likewise, I'm surprised that I've not been accused of over-saturating the hawksbill (IMO, it is a tad overdone).

    BTW, there's one other photo that I considered, but then realized that it would be a poor career move, as it is not for the easily offended. Consider it to be "PG-13" content and if you still want to see it, click here to view.

    I agree, it's not something I'd want to see all day at work :p

    Having worked in a cave myself, I think the hornbill could bring the necessary illusion of the existence of daylight.

    The giraffe neck provides a terrific illusion of weightlessness and freedom.
