The Stare of a King

By clive burrow
An Asiatic Lion taken at Chester Zoo last week during a short family break in the area.

This was my first visit to Chester Zoo and was very impressed with it.

Handheld(resting on the top of one of the information boards around the enclosure 1/640 @ f6.3, iso 400.

Thanks for looking, any comments much appreciated.

Has a Narnia feel about it Clive, my only reservation about the shot is I think the crop is tight, bottom, left & right. Otherwise I feel this could really have been an EC winning shot!.....It's still a great shot despite this IMHO, well done Clive.

Many thanks for the comments, they're all much appreciated.

Ade, I thought someone might mention the tightness of the crop. I'll have a little play over the next few days when I get back home and see what I can come up with.

Thanks again

Might make the difference between a HC and an EC Clive Smile

Not sure how I missed this one Clive. Personally I like the tight crop, but then each to their own eh!

Love the detail and colours too, well done on the HC.

Very, very nice - The tight crop, and the black background really work well on this shot. I have to agree with the previous comment about Narnia - you can imagine Aslan looking like this after the battle with the White Witch!
