[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have been going through some more pics I have taken and started to post again - damn, but work can really interfere with the photography, lol.

Another young lion at the santuary - see previous posts for more info. I am also finding that I am not doing much on the pp side any more - most adjustments done in Raw Shooter Premium - if it cant be fixed there, then the pic is not good enough! Your thoughts!

RAW, levels and vibrance adjusted in Raw Shooter, converted to TIFF, smart sharpen in PS2, resize and save as JPG for site

Hi Time,
I like the shadow that in the photo giving contrast. excellent capture and composed well good sharp details, TFS, Kyle

Hi Tim,
A great shot, excellent detail and well-composed. Although I posted a workshop to add a little contrast, I admire your approach to PP. It's so easy to start relying on Photoshop rather than technical ability with a camera, and I think it's a good attitude to see that the balance is needed.

Magnificent presence looking you in the eye. Curious, maybe, but not threatening.
Great job!

dont know much about raw and my tiff facility is too big on pixels for me to get enough shots out of a 256 card..
i understand you correct in raw and then convert to tiff/jpeg...if its not good enough?? you dont pp
well i tried some jpeg pp on this...only because you suggested it..
see what you think

dohh...aido beat me to it....:D

Belle présentation Tim!

Félicitations pour les couleurs et la netteté. J'aime bien l'éclairage subtile et encadrement simple. Par contre je trouve à mon avis qu'il manque un peu de contraste.

Merci pour l'envoie.


He just looks so harmless. This is a beautifull shot. The details and colours are good. It is well composed too. Very well done.

Hi Tim,
The light here was really good. Beautiful colors and sharp detail.
The great eye conact really makes this shot. A nice one!
