Framing too tight?
Lens: DA L 50-200mm f4 Camera: K-50 ISO: 400 

I was trying to keep the other elephant's out of the frame and gave up pretty quickly on trying to keep the big gal's trunk in the picture, but did that kill the shot? The colors were so bland that I thought it looked much better as a contrasty b/w.

Is this a crop? If so try extending the photo vertically both up and down some and post it.

I think the picture is fantastic. I don't even need t see the color version since this one is so colorful in the expression of what looks like sheer joy on the elephants face. The rest of the trunk does not matter, in my opinion, as the subject is the expression captured. In addition to that, the detail in the elephant: the dried cracked skin, the little hairs on the chin, etc, all make the picture that much better. Great work in my opinion.

nice......i'm trying to learn resizing for uploads and printing.....sorta getting it for uploads.....but from what I have read this would be fine for a 4x6 print but anything larger would need some cropping to fit an 8x10 or 16x20..........not that I know but would say this is rather tight as far as printing goes but to view on a screen just fine

No I did not crop it. This was the full shot.

At the point you are I would like to crop even more. I would be interesting to see what it looks like if you cut off the left side and bottom until his eye was around a third of the way from the left and bottom instead of center. My gut tells me that it might make a great focal point.

To answer you specific question, no, I don't think it is cropped to close.
