When I first opened this, after reading the title, the first thing I thought it needs to be cropped tighter and that the message is being lost due to my eyes wanting to go to the top right in the direction they are running.

Then I scrolled down to see you had already cropped it exactly how I was thinking it should be.
Tighter in on the action definitely helps hold the attention on the flying Wildebeest.

I'm seeing a little noise but some like that effect for this type of scene from Africa. I think I would try to clean it up ever so gently so as not to lose details.

These guys have a rough life don't they?

Thanks for the comments. I was not sure if I should crop or not given I cut off some of the bodies, but I do like the crop. Will put it thru some noise reduction.

Great capture.
I think some crop works to bring closer into the scene, and cropping the bodies works because it extends the notion that the line of wildebeests continues. That said, overall I prefer the colors in the first. In the cropped version, despite its greater sense of motion and tighter view, I'd go for a bit more of the bodies on the right.
Into Kenya or into Tanzania?

Thanks Scott. This was the Mara River in Kenya, only this area had no crocs. I am going to go with the crop. Unfortunately cropping further it gets too pixelated.
