“Went on my very first safari in Kenya with the family last week and on the last day in the Maasai Mara we came across this incredible scene. This was taken on my iPhone X’s telephoto lens with the Camera+ app and zero post edits (nothing I did seemed to beat the original JPEG output).”

Maybe it’s the perspective, but the tree looks huge compared to the giraffe. Further, the rain approaching from a distance adds more drama to the overall image.
