How close were you when you took this picture?

Very cool, I love the way he is looking right into the camera. Good light too, and I like the nice, tight crop.

A bit over saturated, ruins what was a beautiful capture. I adjusted the saturation in Photoshop and had to reduce it by 30 to get a natural colour.

Love the lighting. Good focus. Natural bg. Well done. I gave you a 9.

It may just be cuz I was just in kenya and saw a lot of lions but this one seems very red to me, maybe it is the light or a red filter not sure, otherwise nice shot

Good rich color enhanced by the lighting.

He's magnificent. Great focus, color and composition. I am re-ranking you higher.

One of those times where I wish he knew how to use a comb. :)

Good photo - but If you had cropped it around the face only it would have been a great photo..

Looks like my wife when she wakes up :-)
She's a dangerous animal too...

wonderful light, wonderful "hairdo" - that is indeed what the King looks like

Just a tad too much saturation for my tastes, otherwise nice job.
