My first real attempt at Wildlife photography

Some pics from the Kruger National Park taken this December and early January,

we visit the Kruger regularly So I decided to take nature photography a little more seriously. To this end I bought a used 50D and a used 400mm F5.6 L lens.

I also decided to force myself to learn so all pics were taken in Raw format, edited in Canons Digital Photo Professional and the borders were added in Photoshop. I was woefully unprepared for the 400mm and it was a learning curve of note. I also did not take any rest for the window to rest the lens on, so we learn.

I only learned after the fact that one needs to calibrate one monitor (have subsequently done so) so the colours may be out.

Would value some critisism.
