The pic is great, the note sucks ...

He is a beauty.. where was this taken ??


Very nice first post Suha.
Nice backlight, good pose and colours.
Very well done.
Welcome to TN.

Suha, here's an example of "backlighting" that we don't often see here. You managed to capture this well. The composition is just right. Well done.


Firstlt welcome to TN. Very good POV and good moment captured expertly. I like it so much I did a ws. Hope you don't mind

Wow! what a powerful set of jaws. Nice timing on this and the back lighting is a bonus. Welcome.

Fantastic photo congratulations.

Beautiful post.
Nice lighting for this incredible subject, it has a lot of strenth. A note would be nice to tell us something about it, the conditions, whatever you like.
Hope to see more photos and critiques soon.
Welcome to TN, Suha.

Well done. You made the right choice in making the background out-of-focus. Right sun orientation to outline the hair.
Well done !!

Suha bey merhabalar,

Sevgili Süha,vahşi yaşam fotoğrafların üzerine yorum yapmak bize düşmez elbette.Bu konudaki başarını dünya biliyor.Bu da çok güzel bir fotoğraf.Tebrik ediyor,başarılarının devamını diliyorum.Sevgiler.

Great moment, wonderful light!!! Well done Suha!!!

Hi Suha, quite a good photo. I realy like the back lighting enhancing the lions magnificant mane. POV,DOF and focus also well taken care of.

The light from the back enhances the beauty
the blurred background and the sharp grasses are marvellous

Hi Suha, Good moment to get this fine composition. Good clarity and colours. The lighting works well on the lion's mane. Murray.
