Nice capture @ timing.

Processing looks very retro like something from the "African Queen" era shot with a rangefinder.

The vignette looks a touch too rapid/circular ... would like to see a bit more gradual transition/falloff. It looks just a little bit contrived in pp vs. natural from lens.

Scott, 2nd on the great timing, the hippo on the right is watching you and they both appear to be smiling. The processing on the hippos is fine but I would experiment with toning down the highlights in the water behind the hippos.

It's an excellent moment. Maybe make it more about the moment and less about presentation. Perhaps less vignette, as Kent suggested? ((Hard to believe from me, huh?) And perhaps some other selective adjustments?

Kent, Barbara, Karen

Thanks for the feedback and suggestions.
I rarely use a heavy vignette and perhaps this does detract from the moment as Karen has suggested. Going for the almost peeping-into-a-private-moment thingy.
