The giraffes just don't seem to stand out as the subject of the photo. Part of the problem is the detail in the fore- and - background. It would, with patience, be possible to clone out the branch which runs the whole length of the left animal, which would help.

My attempt used level equalizing, and increasing saturation and contrast to bring out the colors.

Too bad we can't just stage these shots to our liking, isn't it?

And M A Y B E just bump up the contrast a bit. Light could have been more cooperative, but again out of your control. Nice pic...best regards,
