Hmmm, just glad that fence was there, as I would have made quite a nice meal by the looks of this glare!!

Thankyou to all who vote/comment on my pictures Smile

I know i still have a lot to learn, but this is a great way to get feedback Smile

Shame the fence is there, otherwise it would have been a stunning image

Please get rid of the fence. It'd be an absolute stunner without it. The lazy, malevolant eye contact sends a primordeal shiver down the spine.

If it's at all possible, try and get close to the fence, that way the fence will not show up on the image. I know that zoo's not let visitors get close to the fences for obvious reasons, but maybe if you had a word with some who is in charge, they might be able to assist you getting closer.

It needs to have the wire fence removed. All it adds is wire fence! Ive removed it in the mod, and cropped to place the eyes on a third, brightened eyes, and increased contrast and sharpness.

the trick at the time of shooting, if at all possible, is to get as close as possible to the fence, and use a wider aperture than that available to you. An f/2.8 lens would do it, otherwise its cloning. The bottom is easier to clove out as all you have to do is extend the grass upwards.

Mod shows its possible with careful cloning, you may want to try it, - you may do a better job as this took maybe 15 minutes.

Take a look at the Lion shot in my PK with a wire fence in front, shot at f/2.8, - just so you can see the diffference in those extra stops, and the additional cost.

A lovely pose and great expression
