MC Hammer - "Can't touch this!"

By TomCoetzee    
A pride of lions presented me with some wonderful interaction, the 1st time in my career of 16 years I saw a big male lion performing like this. It was very early & the light was low, but the action was steaming hot! Got an amazing series of which I believe this is the cherry on the cake!

Cracking shot....

I have uploaded a mod based on the following thoughts...

the greens for me distracted from the main content which is a crime on such a good shot..
branch to the left was a distraction too
Male Lions legs were messy due another in the background

Great image as I say, hope the mod works for you, it is a quick makeover so won't be perfect... Smile

As an after thought.....I also think the title.... whilst funny.... doesn't give the full impact of a potentially life threatening moment for the cub as the male may be going to kill and the female is protecting the cub

Thanks all, Steve thanks enjoyed your mod. Fortunately the cub was never in danger the 2 playing here are brother & sister. The cub belongs to the female you cloned out.Grin

Thats good to hear that the cub was safe Grin

The way the cub is looking in between the two that are "playing" led me down the "don't hurt my mum" thoughts .....

All the best & glad you enjoyed the mod... even though mum has been removed Sad

Amazing shot. Ive never seen one like this. A minor mod uploaded, - warmer WB and a little noise reduction/sharpening.

Well done,


Brilliant timing. Superb capture.

Fine spontaneous image, but it does look a touch cool and slightly low in contrast. Both due to the 3200ISO I would think. Easily warmed up a bit with a touch of contrast added.
