I really like how the arm and hand of the girl on the left side kinda resemble the elephant's trunk shape, it really gives a flowing effect to the image!
Other than that, I love the moment :)

Elephant blessing, and that's how the lady seems to be accepting it.  Right place.  Right moment.  Finger right on the trigger.  Unique and awesome shot.

I can relate to what is happening in this photograph. While visiting family in Vietnam back in 1999, I visited a park in Ho Chi Minh City which had a couple of elephants. I fed one of them sugar cane and she thanked me by patting me on the head, then blowing dry hot air in my face.

The photograph itself is wonderfully laid out. I like the focus on the woman in the center being blessed by the elephant as her friend looks on.

Nice pic, showing a woman getting blessed by an elephant. Btw, where did you take this pic? Coz they don't usually allow cameras into temples.

Elephants are vegetarian and don't (CAN'T) eat through their noses.

That cracked me up.
I was trying to think of a way to say how fast the photographer must have been to capture this seconds before her head was ripped off.
Im glad im not the only one thinking that.

Seriously though, this is a beautiful picture. I wish i was there let alone had an image like this to take with me.
