Well captured.
The sky hasn't been too helpful - but there isn't much you can do about that.
I might be tempted to crop the top to lose some of the bland sky and the distracting dark intrusion in the top right corner.

I have posted some suggested modifications, I never thought about the crop, but it is a good idea. The shot will not appeal to everyone, but personally I think it is a superb shot of what the struggle for life in the wild is all about.

I saw a similar sight at Sabi Sands in October 07, amazing how they get them up the tree! Hope you enjoyed your stay Smile

Congratulations on a terrific shot.

As above, - the bright sky has made the main event a tad dark, - and the shy itself is drab, - but this is not about the sky.

In the mod I suggest:

Crop close at the top.

Use curves, and brighten the animals.

Sharpen.


Hope this is helpful,


Regards


Willie
