Took this at Bristol Zoo - the lion was fixated with my brolley i think. Changed this to B & W and then colourized - it was a very dull day, wet too!

I'd recognise him anywhere with those eyes! I've yet to get a decent full frame shot of him. Nicely done.

Like the way this has been toned. May have cloned two wee highlights top left and top right. Image also seems a little soft - but note if was dull day. I really like the pose and framing. Click, Martin

Nice shot Karen

+ve: That stare! Good choice of toning. Softness works ok for me - looks more like grain due to a high ISO?

-ve: I'd have cropped a little more to the top of the ears and sides of cheeks - it looks a little inbetween having a background and not having one.

Great shot! Would like to see a slightly cropped version, but this one does it for me too.

Looking at it again, I'd also go for slightly less orange in the tone.

thanks folks for your comments - appreciated. yes, think he had gone a bit 'cross-eyed' cos he was looking at my brolley!!


Martin - have only altered the colour to the image, hence the highlights still in. It was shot through glass, so probably a small reflection - agree it would probably look better cloned out.

Lauren - yes is was a high ISO. You know me and cropping Wink

Anyway - thanks all

Great capture. Lovely expression. The sepia toning makes me think of a lion eyeing up a big game hunter.

A 1920's stuffed Lion! Smile

The toning does suit this picture - and the detail is good.
