G is for giraffe in the graveyard

Trying something different today, visited St. Georges church cemetery near my home on Portland, took a very low angle shot with a 10mm Sigma wide angle lens, superimposed with a blurred shot of a giraffe's legs.

The churchyard is an HDR image as the light was very poor and grey this morning

interesting shot, but not my FAVE. I'd prefer to see the giraffe wandering through the gravestones ... just my opinion!

Hi Denise, that was my first intention, but this time I just wanted to give the impression of an animal, and I also think that the gaps between the legs work great as framing for the churchyard, regards

no doubut about what the animal is ... :-) ... and, you're right, the legs do act as wonderful frames!

I suspected Giraffe, but didn't see this coming...which is what keeps me looking forward to seeing your little works of art each day!

Your ideas are fabulous! Love the blurred giraffe's legs here - unusual perspective really works well.
