Hi Geof

Great capture here! She really looks like a dominating queen.

Excellent POV, very nice sharp details, very good BG, superb framing and composition.

Bravo and TFS

Hi Geof

Nicely composed shot of this lioness. I love her pose atop the rock. Nice work. :-)

Hi Geof,
The pose, the place are very impressive! Allthough the sky part shows a lot of dots, I thinks it looks great!
Well done and TFS

Difficult lighting to get the full impact and definition, but you have done well here. Couple of spots - maybe sensor dirt - but a good one.

Very good capture Geof,
The details are nice, clear and sharp.
Good colours, lighting and exposure. POV is superb.
Well composed and good framing.
Thanks for posting, have a great week.

Nice, you had to be close even at 200mm.
What a capture ..


The grey rock and grey sky make this photo something very different. The meaningful pose of the lion is good, too. Very nice.
