The last and for me the most exciting frame from the Lion Pride fight at the West Midlands Safari Park. This is the point when the chased down Lioness had decided that she had to stand her ground and defend herself.

If you look close at her paw as she swipes the Lioness on the nose, her claws are unsheathed… yes this was for real.

As always can I have your thoughts please?

Well timed action shot, but it would have been nice to have had the background blurred more.

Conrad what are you talking about my friend... Blurred more .. it is action it happens as and when it happens. Take a look at the length of the lens used and the F stop used. The background would have been OUT OF FUCUS better if the subject was closer to my lens.. however in live action I HAVE NO CONTROL over their position... so come on mate.. think a little..

There's always Photoshop if you can't get it blurred on the scene. But if you're happy with it, fine. No reason to get worked up over such a simple statement of preference.
