@johnnyrebellious - Oh yeah, wow! I knew that. Hmm...seeing only that corner threw me off.

Anyway, last month I saw this illustrator named Brad Holland speak and in this photo, Burning Giraffe looks like a lot of his work. CLAME.

Saintly. This is what I imagine a religious painting from the Renaissance would look like on super high zoom.

Fofe says:
Well done. Great use of color to go with the burning giraffe. The crop is also perfect, forcing attention on just a few images.

Beard's looking great man.

Giraffes - we love 'em. The wife's favorite animal hands down. Too bad it's burning. You've successfully matched the color and feel of the giraffe with your capture - severely awesome color and cropping.

That giraffe should be calling 911... Instead, it is eating your hat.
