I would prefer the midtones a bit lighter, so as to see the subject better. I also might crop in a little closer.

For me, this portrait of such magnificent animals would have more impace if cropped tighter. The eyes of this lioness are so intense.

Nice subjects, but focus doesn't quite look right. Dappled light is a tricky one too...

Shot seems a little bit grainy and compressed.

cub's face is too soft. lighting could use improvement, most of the picture has a grey-purple cast to it.

Picture seems to have an overall blue cast, probably from the time of day. Seems to busy for a portrait more attention needs to be drawn to the face of the cub.

Very good photo, but didn't feel it was in the spirit of the challenge. Felt like it would be unfare to others to give the score it probably deserved IMO.
