Fantastic presence in this photograph. Most of us only see animals in zoos, but this is as good a capture of natural looking magnificence as I have seen in a while. Excellent light, composition and detail. Love it and faved.

I love the composition. And I'm a sucker for any cat. The only think I think that could have improved this photo was a little more light in the lion's eyes. 8

And it shows! The lion is in a perfect spot in this image but the stone sadly looks artificially burned, great photograph nevertheless and would suit any magazine page proudly (although the resolution because of the stone is poor)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2005 11:59:58 PM
somehow the eyes look too much dodged..looks overdone
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2005 09:27:39 PM
Very cool. I'm guessing this was taken at a zoo. The background color really goes well with the Lion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2005 03:51:17 PM
I love this...10 for me
  Photographer found comment helpful.

returning for comments:
Lions are always wanted. This is a great image with enough detail to satisfy the astute collector.

10. Clear sharp image and excellent framing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/21/2005 03:43:19 AM
Normally a background that is obviously part of a zoo would be offputting. But here it provides a terrific contrast between the texture of the wall and the lions coat. Beautiful image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/21/2005 12:32:29 AM
Wow! What great light. This is a very strong image. Great composition. And did I mention how wonderful the light is?
