I love the photo. It's got nice color, a great subject, and the background is awesome.

If it were me, however, I'd extend the canvas on the left side, clone him in the rest of his ear, and clone in the subsequent necessary background created by adding space for the ear. I did it quickly (I could post the results if you like), and it makes a great picture even better, imo. I also bumped up the saturation and lightnessa little on the giraffe.

It's an excellent combination of a great subject and an awesome background, imo. Great pic!

Yes please show me what you did. It's a pity I didn't notice his hear cut off when I was framing it originally.

I have another photo with both his ears in but there is less neck. I think with giraffe photos you need to show plenty of neck

Here it is. Just remember I did it quickly. I wouldn't consider it my best work, but I think you can get the idea :-)
