What an image with impact Anne!! I refused to take my son a a child to the circus after seeing something like this first hand. I had never given much thought to the quality of life of thee animals before. This is a heart touching capture, and though it is sad, it is a fantastic capture that makes you think. For that reason alone, in my book it's a winner. Congratulations on an outstanding finalist Anne!!

Thank you so much Judges and all the wonderful people at BP for the comments. I really felt his emotion when I took this capture... and I am thrilled he has been able to speak to you as well.

And of his future? Well better than it may look, he and his mother have been rescued from certain death in a Sumatra logging camp and now live in the Elephant Sanctuary Bali. Still not free but a better future for sure.
