Lovely study of the natural environment

A bit over exposed, but very nice composition.

This apprears to be a puma, not a lioness.

captivating eyes... always amazes me how well these critters can blend in

Good, and I like how you have focused her.....

I always loved cougars

Striking... nice lighting.

Good composition.

Beautiful shot...very nice. Shadows look really good. Composition is great. Contrast seems a little low but not worth much in my mind. Just wish she popped out of the picture more.

Nice shot. Could perhaps use a little brightening to bring out the beautiful rich, tones.

The shadows are ok, but would be better if lightened up a bit. In other words, less contrasty. Is this an American Mountain lion?

this is actually a cougar but its a nice photo... i like it

Given the spirit of the challenge was to capture a shot of wildlife in its natural environment, I find it most difficult to believe that this was done with your entry. Needless to say my vote on this was very low given those circumstances. When a photo does not do its best in composition to depict actual challenge guidelines, my stadegy for voting immediately stops and it becomes a DNMC to me. Nice capture, but certainly not one I can imagine you sought out for the purposes of a graphic ribbon, in the wild, and in their natural environment.

If this is wild, you are a luck duck...

imo, cloning out the grass that intrudes on her face would help, otherwise nice capture
