Lovely detail on the mane and especially the face showing each scar from a number of fights. Well taken with good composition, exposure and focus.

Stunning image. Fantastic portrait. Excellent details. Spot-on focus. Perfectly framed. What more can I say?...................Really a pleasure to look at. One of the better close-ups of the king I have seen in a long time. Thanks for sharing.

This is another beautiful capture of this King. Instead of being disturbing, this green vegetation in foreground adds a natural touch. Details are so amazing that I can almost feel his fur! Very well done! Thanks,

looks like he's just coming out from the hairdresser's !
Nice focus on the eyes and the moustache. Just regret you have this green blurred piece of foliage, a bit disturbing IMHO
Another gorgeous portrait from you, my friend!
So which one was the most successful shooting trip: South-Africa or Namibia? Because i see so many amazing photos from both locations and i for one can't make my mind up :)
Anyway, this is a typical wild lion caught here - with some little fight marks showing well on his snout and being constantly on the lookout for what the women are doing :))
The impeccable details and shallow DOF are already a trademark for you and here i'd also like to remark on the very nice square composition and how well that works in this case.
Bravo and TFS

Indrukwekkende kerel. Fluit nog net niet naar de meiden.
Perfecte scherpte en weer schitterend natuurlijke kleuren tegen een mooie zachte achtergrond. Grootst!

Simply beautiful, majestic lion and so amazing portrait. You managed to reflect and share its internal world, state of mood. It is clear the quality of lion image reproduction is the highest (it is your feature) but I am impressed with nice surroundings. A bit blurred green twigs in front of the animal and smooth nicely coloured BG decorate the portrait excellently. My best wishes and thanks for this work of art.

De koning onder de dieren heb je hier prachtig weten vast te leggen. Prachtig van scherpe en goede details.
Hele mooie compositie en pose. Vooral de takjes net voor de leeuw maken het plaatje compleet.

Now, that's some portrait of a Katanga Lion, Annick!
That distant expression in the eyes says why he is the king of the animal kingdom.
A portrait worth hanging on a wall in the largest possible size.
Thanks and regards.
