Took this at San Francisco Zoo. I know it's almost cartoony color-wise, but this guy really reminded me of Narnia (movie). He IS roaring, even though it looks a little like a yawn. Burned a lot, especially on the mouth b/c it was blurry b/c of the roar. Also sharpened quite a bit.

I just added this to my fav's, I'm so glad I stumbled across it, it is beautiful. Fantastic cooridination of colors, super amazing pose, and I love the softness, which I guess could be attributed to the movement. I know the lion was moving, but looking at the bokeh I don't think you could blame him for all of it, it looks like the cameras side was moving a bit too. Anyway great photo.

Taking another look at it and WOW. It still stuns me. This practically cries out for a print to be made.

Should have finished higher. Really like it. Good composition, complementary colours, and motion. Nice.

I gave this an 8. I thought the bright simple colors and the glow were magical, and really did evoke Narnia for me.

Wow.
It's looks completely fake, which isn't meant to be an insult.

Lovely composition with great color - the softness adds to this in my opinion. Well done.

I have mixed emotions about this one. It is an interesting image, but is also on the "overprocessed" side.
